Hello , thanks for stopping by to see what I have been crafting while at the lake, it seems appropriate to have a water realted csrd for the Seize The Birthday challenge #221 By the Sea is the topping. I was inspired by the surprise party guest Jenny, so in packing for the lake I added my lighthouse die and a scrap of ancient Stampin' up patterned paper, I'm sure it is the final piece.

By the Sea
I love taking pictures on the breakwall overlooking the lake, although when I was there to take the picture the sun decided to hide. I smooshed the scrap of watercolour paper into distress oxide blues. making sure I had a darker spot for the water, My first pass with the die it didn't want to cut one spot, so I grabbed the waxed paper and gave it another try it was perfect. Now I didn't throw the first one away I used the top half and put the yellow between the two layers, the red I paper pieced. The die cuts the lighthouse out of a piece of cardstock but I wanted it to be a circle and used a postage stamp circle die to cut it out. I also cut two heavy cardstock circles to give the circle some elevation.
Finished the inside with scraps of paper and a sentiment from Printworks. (I like this as I use it for Christmas as well)
I'm entering this in:
Seize the Birthday ~~ Challenge #221 By The Sea
Happy Little Stampers ~~ Anything Goes with Dies.
