 I used the cute Nautical Set - Knotty from Avery Elle to make my card today. I repeated the You are my Anchor sentiment to make the background on my tag. This cute little anchor paper was meant to go with the stamps!

 I colored the anchor with Copics and then fussy cut it, popping it up with foam tape on the tag. The tag die is from Avery Elle and I really like that it has two different tag sizes as well as a separate die to cut out the blue ring to cover the hole. I used my Perfect Layer Rulers to add a 1/16" border to the tag. 

I added layers on the inside too, of course with my Perfect Layer Mini Rulers. I love finishing the inside of my cards to coordinate with the front and it usually is made up from my left overs.
