Lighthouse Birthday

Hey Everyone...Yep its me, I'm totally back again!  I told you I'm on a roll.  Just trying to tie up loose ends before I am off for 4 - 6 weeks.  I will continue to try to blog during this time, however I'll be typing one handed so I warn the blogs may not make sense and there probably won't be many posts...but until then...ENJOY this!

This is another card that I created for part of an order that I was working my way through.  Nautical is totally in, and I absolutely love these colours together, so thought that it would be nice to play on that colour scheme and theme.  Its also been a long time since I used my zig clear colours, so what a perfect image to use these with.  I couldn't be happier with the way that it turned out, and this card is perfect for a guy.

Here's the front of the card...
