Chalk Ah Lot nautical card

Back again for week 2 on the Chalk Ah Lot blog challenge blog for the challenge Nautical with Chalk.Here is my card which is similar to last weeks card. The waves have been painted with a mixture of powdered chalk and paint by Stamp N Plus. I added Stardust chalk to the embossed area after I inked it with distress ink. It's hard to see in this picture but in real life it has a beautiful shimmer to it. 

The anchor tag was painted with Gem chalk for the outside and Foggy for the anchor. I adore this card however I don't know what occasion it would be used for. I might hold onto this one for a while before sending it out to friends or family just so I can look at it:)

The embossing folder and twine/string is by Darice. The die cuts are all by Cricut's cartridge Life's a Beach. I really like the little seagulls. The cardstock used in this card is by Recollections. 

Thanks for looking.
