Lighthouse Happy Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday!  I have already featured a couple other nautical stamp sets from Victorine Originals on my blog HERE and HERE.  

My card today features a different Nautical stamp set, from Mirkwood Designs.  I started with a card base using a sand colored cardstock from DCWV's Beach House stack and stamped the rope 2/3 of the way down the front of the card using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I filled in the rest of the card front with other stamps from the Nautical stamp set using Antique Linen Distress Ink.
For the lighthouse panel, I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink on kraft cardstock and shaded all around it with more of the Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I layered that on top of more patterned paper from the Beach House stack.
The sentiment flag used a stamp from Victorine Originals' Floral & Sayings stamp set (one of my all time FAVORITES!)  The only embellishments I used were antiqued copper brads on the card.

Here is a look at the Nautical stamp set
It measures approximately 5.8" (w) x 7.8" (h)

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
