Avery Elle May Challenge

 I am in love with Avery Elle. They're having a release soon and I'm so excited for all of their products. This was the inspiration photo. It reminded me of being back in FL. Well, our water in Jacksonville didn't look like this but it sure did when we went on our vacations to the Keys. :) Sure do miss that! Until then, I'll just enjoy San Diego's weather a little more. 

Here is my take on the photo. I definitely wanted to pull in some of the teal colors. They are so calming. I used an Avery Elle stamp, Knotty. The stripes were stamped in Hero Arts Shadow Inks, Pool, Neon Blue, Tide Pool and Soft Pool. For the anchor, I heat embossed onto vellum. I wanted to soften the card a bit. I then embossed the sentiment and added a heart with glossy accents. 

Thanks so much for stopping by :) Entering into Simon Says Challenge as well.
