8/16/2016 Update: This card was a Top Three winner!
Growing up near the seashore and learning to sail at a young age makes me love all things nautical. I was inspired to create this card for a few challenges.
Dropping the card front onto an open ink pad also provided some unintended "interesting" highlights on the mountains and water.
The card front was adhered to the card base. A sentiment was stamped onto a banner, edge-sponged and popped up. The inside was decorated with a stamped lighthouse image.
