Well.....this card totally evolved from that bright bit of sunshine in the upper right hand corner of the card......When I went down to work on this card, that piece was staring me in the face.....then I remembered this sentiment stamp I had yet to put to ink.....and it grew from there. As many of you know, I love the ocean and lighthouses.......and well, this card is a reflection of that love.
Obviously, I flipped the sketch on its side......all because of that sun.....
I must say that I like the results and really like the sketch. Will definitely be trying to find a bit more time to play in the morning between chores and commitments.
Thanks for looking. Thanks again for a great sketch, Rox. You do manage to come up with such great challenges for us.

Wow! This is a great card with beautiful coloring! Love that sentiment....it reminds me of another favorite ('the mighty oak was once a nut that helds its ground')...in other words, mighty things often start out with very small ideas. :-)
