Verve May 2013 Spotlight Hops: Day 3--Strong Anchor

We're on Day 3 of Verve's new release Spotlight hops! Today, we're peeking the new sets Strong Anchor, Adjusted Sails Plain Jane, and the Nautical die-set. This is a gorgeous set that I think you love for those masculine cards! I created my Dad's father's day card already, hee!!


My dad is a Godly man and I think this set is just perfect for him...I can't wait to send it off  *guess I better get started on that Mother's day card? Ha!*

This set has a few gorgeous verses, and some fun nautical images and even comes with a coodinating die set! I cut the wheel out with one of the dies and then stamped the wheel stamp in rhubarb ink. The rope border is also from Strong Anchor.


I kept the layout quite similar on the inside of the card and added a couple more sentiment stamps from the set. I really can't wait to send this to my dad, have I mentioned that yet?:) 
If the layout looks familiar, this is Deconstructed Sketch #100! It's a two week sketch, so you have another whole week to play along if you want to!
