& Now for Something Completely Different...

Hope you're all enjoying the long Easter weekend, we are going to see my brother this afternoon & then the inlaws are coming round for tea.

This was a bit of a challenge but that's what I love about Faith's free images on Delightful Inspiration they give you something different to work with that you wouldn't necessarily choose yourself. I coloured her lighthouse image in with Distressed Inks & added a touch of glitter glue to the waves. The papers are from Designs by Krista & I distressed the edges with my stitch unpicker. Finished off with a couple of nautical beads, greeting & 2 brads.

I'm entering this card for 5 challenges:
Eat Sleep Stamp - Sketch
Bee Crafty - Birthday
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Polka Doodles - Birthday!
Sweet Stampin - It's a Man's World
