MMSC 67 Lighthouse

Hi Everyone!

Well, I'm a couple of days late with my card for this week's MMSC challenge. I don't often do square cards; but for this sketch, it just seemed to be the best way to go. I just realized I didn't do the inside of this card. I will, though...I promise!
I started with a 5 1/4 x5 1/4 square Sahara Sand base. The Pure Poppy (PTI) on the left measures 1 7/8 x 5. I embossed the background using Martha Stewart's Clear Pattern Stamps with Versa mark and clear embossing powder. On the right side I embossed a 3 1/4 x 5 piece of Ocean Tide (PTI) using the "Spots and Dots" folder. The Lighthouse image is from OCL's "Coastal Wishes" stamped on Gina K Pure White Luxury card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I used Copic Markers (B00, G21, G24, Y67, W3, C1, E07, B45, YG91, E25) to color in the image. I finished the card using the embroidery floss. The flower and button in the middle is from Making Memories "5th Avenue" Buttons and Blossoms collection.
So, that's all for me today. It's been ages since I've gone around visiting other people's creations, so I'm off to do that for a while. Have a fantastic and creative day!!

Good morning Dori-You can image my surprise when I was trying to figure out who you were and found this Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge card!!! lol You need to link this at the MMSC blog girlfriend-I didn't see it there!!! lol I love this image-perfect for a Rhode Islander!!! I was just up in your neck of the woods two weeks ago. I was born and raised in Connecticut and my family still lives there. I flew into Providence. I am so jealous that you live so close to the "Christmas Tree" shop. I didn't get a chance to swing by. Of course, I hope it is still open!!! lol The way businesses are shutting their doors. Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,
