Lighthouse Thanks

Today over at Blogger's Challenge our theme is "For the Men" which is just in time for Father's Day here.  I've already created my Father's Day cards for my Dad and my hubby so this one I created here is actually a commissioned card for someone's husband.

She requested something with lighthouses and I haven't broken out this set from Our Craft Lounge in awhile so thought it would be perfect.

I love the OCL sets and how they have the colored images on the front of the packages to give you a little guidance.  This one I decided to color on kraft card stock to give it a more masculine look.  The anchors are perfect to create my own background and I stamped it using the same color as the card stock (Simply Blue-tiful).

Want to join us over at Blogger's Challenge, just link in with your masculine creation.
Card details:
Stamps: Smooth Sailing from Our Craft Lounge
Card stock: Kraft Like a Rock Star, Georgia Pacific White, Simply Blue-tiful
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, copic markers
Embellishments: brown twine

Your background is so much fun and really makes the light house image stand out.
