“Lighthouse” Birthday Card




This is not really how I planned this card to come out but all in all I think it is pretty nice.  The flowers are made from a recycled background paper of the New York skyline.  I though the paper was too pretty to throw away. 

I used in this project:
Hambo Hoedown – “Lighthouse” image and sentiment
EK Success – EK Success Retro Flower
MS – Butterfly
Queen and Co. – Bling
Offray – Ribbon

I would like to enter my project in the following challenges:
