Lighthouse for guy

This is my new set "Uncharted Territory" that I got today! I find it harder to make cards for guys and I think this one is a great one that will be very versatile.

The layout is from Pals Paper Arts - isn't it great! I knew it would fit this set really well.
The color combination is from Splitcoast this week - Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Bravo Burgundy

I stamped the lighthouse image 3 times - baja, white and burgundy and cut the white and burgundy pieces out that I wanted and pieced the scene together!

I added some texture with crimping and I inked a texturz plate.

The sentiment from "Hodgepodge Happiness" fit just right with this guy card. I embellished with brads and linen thread.

I love the white layers and the white lighthouse that I think really pops!
