PS SPARKS Cool Shades - Celebration

Hello! It's time for a new challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge! I had fun with the Cross Stitch Technique that Savannah showed in a Virtual Smooches Video (click HERE to see more!) LOVED playing around with it - and this is what I came up with:

This week it is a Cool Shades Challenge:

Here is the color palette - Celebration:

I used the little cross stitch from Needle Little Love to build my anchor pattern. The sentiment and hearts are from Wicked Nauticool. I stamped the sentiment in 3 parts so that it stacked where I had room for it, instead of all in one straight line.

Pattern papers are from Glitz Designs Uncharted Waters and Fancy Pants Down By the Shore 6x6 paper pads.

Rounded a couple of corners, used some distress ink to soften things up a bit, and added just a touch of bling to the hearts and top left corner before mounting on an Avery Elle Kraft Cardstock base.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Please stop by and see what the rest of the SPARKS team put together:
