Paper Smooches Nautical Card

(Edited to add: I'm linking this up with the Moxie Fab World Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge!)

Hello again! Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I have fallen head over heals for the nautical trend. I don't know why - but I LOVE it! I was leaving out of town the end of last week, so even though I had this in my head, I never had a chance to put it together in time to enter last weeks challenge. But, I am sending in my application for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Design Team call (fingers crossed big time!) - so I thought I would make this anyway a bit late!
I used the Trend Watch photo inspiration from THIS challenge:

I used the adorable Paper Smooches Anchor Die, tied a jute twine bow on it, and attached a MFT red button. Sentiment is from my first Paper Smooches set I ever purchased (when I fell in love with them!) - Sentiment Sampler. I stamped that with MFT ink.
Pattern papers are from a Fancy Pants 6x6 paper pad called Down By The Shore. I used a Lil' Inker's Designs stitched rectangle die to cut my main panel out of white cardstock. Card base is Avery Elle Kraft cardstock.
I attached the anchor with foam adhesive, as well as the white panel, then added a few gold sequins  - another design crush of mine! 
Thanks for visiting me again! I have one more Paper Smooches card to post, then I think I am done for the day! See you in a few!
