Lighthouse card





I've had a great playtime today. I made this card for my Dad's birthday. He is difficult to make a card for as he does not have any hobbies so when I saw this freebie on the Tiddly Inks blog I new it would be perfect.
I used this image from Tiddly Inks, promarkers/copics, Nesties, Liquid Pearls, papers are Linda Maron blue linen wash & Francis Meyer baby boy soft stripes.
I am entering this card into the following challenges -
Tiddly Inks - 1st challenge, anything goes
Quixotic challenge - make a splash
Prairie Fairy - eyelets & string
