With Deepest Thanks

Reverse Confetti's August Color Challenge is up, and the entries so far are fantastic! If you haven't played along yet, there is still time. The deadline is noon on Friday, August 29. Head over to the Reverse Confetti blog for all the rules and to link up.

Here's the glamorous color combo this month:

I loved the nautical feel of the red, blue, and gold, so that's the direction I went. The darling anchor in HAPPY HARBOR is one of my all-time favorite Reverse Confetti images, and I love how it looks embossed in gold! There are two sentiments in the HERE WE GO set that are perfect for the anchor: "with deepest thanks" and "from the bottom of my heart." (I chose the first one simply because the size worked better.) The tag is die-cut with TAG ME CONFETTI CUTS, and the circle was first die-cut with one of the circles from the CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS CONFETTI CUTS set, then partially dry embossed with the large circle pattern. The anchor pattern in the background makes the card a tad busy for my liking, but it was too perfect to pass up! It's hard to tell in the photos, but I also used some Stampin' Up brushed gold card stock for the card base. Love how it looks in real life!

For more color challenge inspiration, see today's post on the Reverse Confetti blog.
