Come Sail Away Lighthouse

Continuing in my love for this set, here is another card using Sailing Away.  This time my focus is the light house.  I have used both the die and the lighthouse.  Using the moss to accent behind, this is simple card, that I mass produced for a swap. Although 20 cards take a little time,  this wasn't that difficult to kick out.

Mosaic Mood Tree

One of the new bundles in the catalog, might not look like much at first glance, but it really has a lot to offer when you use little imagination.  I am just getting started with it and I hope you will stay tone for what I have coming up.    This is just the start of the great ideas I have in store.  I did not use the punch, but it is totally awesome to have, I have used it on lots of other projects!!!
 


Here is the video tutorial on how I made this card.
