Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 320

Hello friends! Are you ready for another yummy inspiration from the Cupcake Inspirations challenge? Today we're playing with Navy, White, and Gold! What a lovely color combination! Check out that lovely anchor on today's card! It's from our fantastic sponsor, DRS Designs. This week, you could win a gift card to their shop!

The DEEtails:

I started with a lovely Night of Navy card base and layered on this fabulous knot pattern from the Martime DSP. Next I layered on some Whisper White cardstock stamped with the World Map background image. I mounted it on some fun foam and framed it with some Night of Navy cardstock die cut with two Pierced Rectangles. Next, I layered on some cute flags. The banner was die cut in three colors, then chopped up to make some nautical flag designs. The sentiment is from Hello Sailor. I like how the Whisper White ink shows up a little chalky and not quite perfect in my die cut circle. Last is this lovely anchor image from DRS Designs. I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock in VersaMark and embossed it with some luscious gold. A little gold twine tops it off. Hope you like the card today!
