Hi!  I just got the Guiding Lights set from PTI and as soon as I saw the challenge at Just Us Girls, I knew this set would be perfect!  I teamed that up with the sketch at Just Add Ink and came up with this card.

I started with a Slate card base and sponged over the Scribble Script stencil with Slate ink for a tone-on-tone look.  The circle was cut with a pierced circle die and the sentiment and birds were white embossed to the left of the circle.  

I die-cut then stamped the lighthouse, which was then popped up on foam tape.  Some gray twine finished the card.

Thanks for visiting.
