this hope...

Hello friends!!   Popping with a card I made using the 4th sketch for the June Viva La Verve challenge and the current color palette from ColourQ.    I will also be posting this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge and the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.  I'm trying to use more of my huge stash of 6x6 paper pads and so I hunted around and found the My Mind's Eye Moments pad that contained pretty much all the colors in the ColourQ palette.  I did another very literal interpretation of this VLV sketch.  Sometimes I like to take a bit of license with a sketch, but this sketch was one I just felt like playing it safe with.  I used the Verve set Strong Anchor and the company die set.  The anchor was stamped using Stampin Up! Soft Sky and the sentiment was stamped using Stampin Up! Marina Mist.   The pale blue cardstock is Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass the closest cardstock color I had to Soft Sky.  We continue to have nice sunny weather so I was able to take my photo outside.  I did have to act quick, though because I has gotten rather windy!  I have never played along with The Challenge and since the theme this time is nautical I thought I would post this card there, as well.
