Father's Day Lighthouse hello from Sunshine Card

The Lighthouse used on the front of this card was in my scrap pile from a first draft of a card I made back in 2013 so instead of tossing it I repurposed it for this card.

Used inks to color along with Crayola pencil colors for touch up on the Lighthouse & scene.

Used a sketch which you can see below.

Used Simon Says Stamp Hello Sunshine Frame.

Stamped "From:" to make the front indicate:

Embossed Sun Rays & put inside card.

Stamped Cardz TV stamp that fit the Lighthouse theme wonderfully.
