Lighthouse in Black & White

I have been busy this past weekend stamping, unfortunately it's a bunch of stuff I can't show just yet.  

It's been awhile where I've created a card I am thrilled with, until this one.  I had this image stamped for a quite awhile for a Black & White challenge for Scrap N Plus Stamp N Designers.  Each month a new challenge is issued and this month was Black & White.  I thought this Lighthouse image would  be perfect.

I'm not sure where I got the text paper from, it was in my paper stash and it didn't have any identification on it, but I've enjoyed using it and wish I had a few more pieces.  Distress, distress, distress-I really need that Zutter tool!  But I had fun distressing!

I added a simple Father's Day sentiment on to the bottom and adhered it with 2 white brads, not sure if I took too much away from the distressed text paper or not?

Hope you enjoy the card!   Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Card details:
Stamps:  Light House J2160 and sentiment from Scrap N Plus Stamp N
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, newsprint text paper unknown
Inks: Basic Black
Accessories: White brads, distressing tool
