Lighthouse Happy Birthday

Hello there! Today's card share uses the retired SU! set Winds of Grace.  I love this type of image on watercolour paper and must miss decorative art painting more than I realize because I could sit for hours and hours, watercolouring images. :)

This card is really quite plain and simple, but the image, colouring and sparkle of the H20's really speak for themselves when you see this card in person, so I just added brads for a bit of embellishment.  Masculine cards don't really need to be too ribbony or frilly I guess :)

The details for this card are as follows: Basic Black, W. White & Bordering Blue cardstocks, watercolour paper, SU! markers, Twinkling H2O's, Silver Brads.

Thanks for dropping by and hope you are having a great weekend!
Deb :)
