YNS Sketch Challenge - Sea It's Your Birthday!

Ahoy!
I'm playing along with the current (get it, current?!) Sketch Challenge from Your Next Stamp and came up with this summer-lovin' shaker card.

I feel like a bit of broken record, or anchor you could say, but I LOVE anything-anchor! The anchor die from YNS Island Fun is my go-to favorite when I need an anchor on the small-ish size, and I've also used the starfish from the same die set. 

I created a shaker pocket using a clear pocket and my handy dandy photo sleeve fuse tool and filled it with clear micro beads and rainstones (a gift from the amazeballs Karolyn Loncon). The banner below was created with Paper Smooches' Sailboat Die. I'm absolutely thrilled with the look of the 'water' floating the anchor. 

Ok, now it's your turn - check out the YNS Sketch Challenge and have a little nauty-fun!

Wonderful card Amy, the beads are perfect! Keep the nautical themed cards coming, I will take all the inspiration you are willing to share. My niece's wedding is soon and she loves nautical.

It's perfect! We raised our kids at the MX track and at the Lake, water skiing and wakeboarding. I love a nautical card and I'm so going to have to get a fuse tool! I think it would make shaker cards less time consuming. lol Thanks, Amy R.
