Shopping Our Stash #252 ~~ Sounds of the Sea

Welcome to a new weekly challenge at Shopping Our Stash, Sounds of the Sea ~~ we want you to make and ocean/seashore/beach/fishy scene.  I decided I would like to "kill" two birds with one stone and make a retirement card for one of the AM morning hosts that is retiring to PEI, Jeff Hucheson you can read about him HERE.  

The image is the lighthouse in Nova Scotia and one of a set of 4 lighthouses retired from Stampin'up. I used a lot stash on this card, the last piece of that very old patterned paper (SU) a scrap of silver paper, even the sentiment was printed on a scrap, nothing like conserving paper.

Close up of the image.

Inside sentiment was computer generated.

Thanks for dropping by today and get your thinking caps on and show us your Ocean/seaside, fishy, beach scene.

Totally curious... you're a fan, or you are friends with a Canadian tv personality? ;) This card is gorgeous. I still have almost ALL of that SU nautical paper. Guess I should get busy!
