My Anchor Card with Heartfelt Creations

Hi Everyone!  Today Heartfelt Creations is pleased to release its Everyday Heroes Collection!  This is what Heartfelt Creation's has to say about its newest release:

"Do you have an unsung hero in your life?  Your champion may never have a medal pinned to his or her chest, but you can demonstrate your gratitude with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  These epic stamps, dies and papers salute the extraordinary "ordinary people" who inspire us as they live their daily lives with honor and integrity. Greys, teals, khakis, creams and browns have been blended with distressed newsprint, vintage maps, globes, sailing ships, timepieces, combat boots, stripes, dots and flourishes to create a rugged, paper collection that is timeless in its appeal.  Six deeply etched cling stamp sets featuring detailed collages, inspiring sentiments and unique circular elements mesh perfectly with the paper collection and matching set of dies.  Let's sing the praises of the unsung heroes in our lives with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations!"

The card I made this week features the beautiful HCPC 3662 - My Anchor Cling Stamp Set and used the coordinating HCD1-761 Everyday Hero Die to die cut the anchor.  I also used the gorgeous HCDP1-253 Everyday Hero Paper Collection.

I colored the image with Copics and used the HCPC 3596 Celebrate the Journey Sentiments Cling Stamp Set and coordinating HCD1-744 Once Upon a Time Die to create the compass.
