Happy Birthday Trell!!!

Hello My Crafty Friends,
I'm sorry I've been MIA these couple of days but, my Studio is a disaster!! It's a good thing though because I put my son's old dresser and book shelf in my studio so I can organize some more I will do a video or photos once done!! OK, enough about that, Let's get to the CELEBRATION!! I'm super excited and honored to be a Guest Designer for my friend Trell from Polka Dots and Paint and celebrate his BIRTHDAY today Yippee!  Happy Birthday Trell may you keep getting younger!! My Friends, please stop by Trell's blog HERE and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! and check out his amazing projects HERE.  Trell, is not only a talented card maker but, he is also SUPER talented in cake baking and LOVES fashion.  The card I made for Trell today is using The Open Sea which was in the Summer Mini but, Stampin' Up! will keep selling it which I'm super excited about because I LOVE LOVE this stamp set, so run and get your set NOW you'll love it too!!!  Thank you for visiting and until next time, Enjoy!!  Thank you Trell for having me as your very first Guest Designer and on your BIRTHDAY my friend!!
The anchor was heat embossed using The Open Sea and the Gold emboss Powder
This ribbon is on the Clearance section for only $1.99 can you believe it!!! Rush over to my store HERE and stock up before it's GONE!!!!
The inside of the card was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede on Crumb Cake CS. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso and our Stamping Sponges. LOVE the Early Espresso for sponging edges!!
The globe was heat embossed and cut and put on top of a Cherry Cobbler CS. The anchor was embossed with Cherry Cobbler emboss powder and then I wrapped it with some Early Espresso Twine around the anchor, the sentiment was also heat embossed. Did I tell you how much I LOVE this stamp set:)
