March Crafters of Faith Challenge


Hello Stampers!  Today my card is for the Crafter's of Faith March Challenge.  Our hostess this month is the VERY talented Carolina.  She asked us to make a card using a lighthouse or something that makes you think "light". Also, we were to use two different DSP and some "bling".  Well, I got the lighthouse and the paper right, but my bling is pretty muted.  My card ended up looking pretty masculine, so rhinestones and swirls just wouldn't work!  The buckle and ribbon is "guy bling"!  (I'm stretching here, I know!!)  I am pleased with the card, except for that lovely shadow in the picture-sorry about that....

Lighthouse image is from Sweet and Sassy Stamps, DSP is from DCWV, cardstock is Stampin' Up!  Ribbon and buckle are from JoAnn's. 

Please check my sidebar for links to the other gals cards.  They are a very talented group and I am blessed to be a part of them.

Thank you for stopping in today.  Be blessed!

Oh Carol, this is just lovely :) I love the cutout to snuggle your wonderful lighthouse in - very creative! The colors are so soft and subtle and work perfectly! I'm so glad you are a COF gal! Blessings! x0x0

Your "guy bling" is just terrific! Much more compatible with your card than rhinestones!

Thanks for your comment on my Easter card, Carol. Larry and I asked someone the very same question at church this morning --the answer was that the purple trees bloom for about 2 months.

Love this wonderful choice of colors for this magnificent lighthouse. I apologize for being late with mine. I helped lead a spiritual 4 day weekend, and now I have some catching up to do.
