THD Challenge 14- get it while it's hot!

We're celebrating the anniversary of The Heart Desires Store and the THD Challenge this month with a hop where you could be a winner! Can't believe it has been a year already!!!    At the same time we're going to start something new for the challenge, so strap in folks and enjoy the ride!

Here is this month's challenge photo- swoon! 

Here is my first take on the challenge: 

For this card I started with a white base and embossed using the  Carta Bella Anchors Away Stencil.  I came in with a some Ranger distress ink in orange and yellow and the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Too.  Once I had the base I took these Memory box waves, also added blue distress ink.  Next I cut out the C9 Heartstrings Die, I set aside the innards for later and used the negative heart shape to set this beach lovers scene.  The final touch was the wood boat from Studio Calico.  This is a no stamping card for me my friends, such a rarity!
