Lighthouse Card

This card measures approximately 5.5ins x 5.5ins using a hand cut, white linen effect card blank.
I just cannot believe how this card came together!  The wave and small embellishments came from a pack of Jolees stickers sent to me so many years ago that I forget by my wonderful friend Dianne in Florida, but I knew one day I would use them.
The lighthouse came from a pack of cheap and cheerful metallic stickers I have also had squirrelled away for some time.  I wondered if the metallic effect would work, I was so thrilled when it did.
As for the paper, which came from  small paper pad from The Works, the sun ray effect couldn’t have been more perfect.  All I had to do was lightly colour over a tiny part with a Promarker pen to give the illusion that the lighthouse was on land.
I love the card so much, made for a gentleman for his eightieth birthday, I am going to try and recreate it again but put it in a shadow frame in my guest room. I am just praying I have another lighthouse somewhere ………
