Enjoy Every Moment!

Good Morning! I recently purchased some retired PSX large image stamps, that are finely detailed to color with my Copic Sketch Markers. This is the first of the 3 that I purchased, called "Portland Head" Lighthouse. I paired up the image with a new paper designer that I've just discovered, "Maja Designs" with their nautical paper pad called "Life By the Sea".  I love this paper pad many pretty designs and colors. I kept the embellishment of this card to a minimum and the layout clean to not distract from the pretty image. Below, is a photo of the card interior. I added a seagull button from "Dress It Up" that had a shank...gave me an excuse to use my button shank remover for the first time! It worked like a charm! Love, love, love it!
