Nautical and Nice ~ Card Concept #12 & The Challenge #9

Today's card come to you by way of The Card Concept #12, which used a nautical theme, and The Challenge #9 sketch.
I had so much fun mixing patterns and prints here.  My original inspiration was a clean and simple picture, and that was my do a clean and simple card...but I guess it's just not me!  This is what I ended up with and I would guess it's clean and layering (according to The Card Concept). 
I just got my Kinda Eclectic stamp set in the mail and was anxious to use it.  I thought the sun/starburst image would look kinda neat behind the anchor, and I think I was right.  I like it!  And, the polka dot image is sure to be a favorite of mine.  I think it looks fabulous combined with the chevron image from Work of Art.  

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Kinda Eclectic, Banner Blast, The Open Sea, Work of Art
Ink: Hello Honey, Real Red, Midnight Muse
Paper: White, Real Red, Midnight Muse DSP, Moonlight DSP pack
Accessories: Banner punch, Baked Brown Sugar bakers twine, Itty Bitty Accents punch pack, Large Polka Dot EF

Thanks for taking a peek!
