Lighthouse Birthday

I am sneaking in with a masculine birthday card I created using the  Our Daily Bread Designs Lighthouse Single image I have had sitting on my desk for what seems like an eternity.

There is nothing like getting some Happy Mail  that included Tsukineko Memento Markers, to get you colouring.  I have to be honest and say that I am loving them - it was so easy colouring this image, I love the control you have over light and shade and the depth of colour you are wanting to achieve.
The image has been cut and embossed using the Spellbinders A-2 Matting Basics B Nestabilities®.  I have cut a backing layer, using the same Die and sanded the edges - I love that extra dimension it gives.

The sentiment is from JustRite® Papercraft and has been stamped using Tsukineko Vintage Sepia Versafine Ink.  The paper is some retired Basic Grey paper - and a favourite - I use it sparingly!

This card is for the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Anything goes
BasicGrey - Anything goes
Catch The Bug Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes.
Crafty Creations - Anything goes
Freshly Brewed - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - New something
Paper Shelter Challenge - anything goes
