Lighthouse Birthday

This is a birthday card that I made using a light house rubber stamp.  I colored the image using prisma and crayola colored pencils.  The grass and the sky are colored using chalk.  I backed the image in red and then again in white and one more time in navy blue.  The base of my card is red, backed in white and then again in navy blue.  I added 3 red rhinestones to the bottom left corner and a seagull button to the upper right corner.  I stamped the sentiment to the upper right corner.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A beautiful seascape card. We don't have these kind of seascapes in SC, but we have some beautiful beaches. You did an awesome job with the prisma and crayola colored pencils.
