I used some fun, coordinating Maja Design papers for this card...the Life by the Sea collection has a great assortment of nautical themed papers...just perfect for pairing them up with Verve's new Strong Anchor stamp set and coordinating Nautical dies. After arranging the papers, I added a seam binding bow from Verve's Signature ribbon collection and a cute little anchor that I distressed around the edges and matted with the same shape in navy blue paper.
Here's another card I made with a new Plain Jane called Adjusted Sails. I think this sentiment sums it up for most of us...do what you have to do to make it work. I used Maja Design's Vintage Spring collection...mostly scraps I had, distressed the edges and arranged the panels (basically in a haphazard way that makes shabby look so good and is hard to screw up). The seam binding is from Verve's Stormy Skies ribbon collection and I added some Zva Creative pearls for a bit of interest.
