Belated Birthday

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week we have a fun tic tac toe board for you:
No automatic alt text available.

And here is the card I created:
I used the top row: use dimension, lighthouse, sponging.  And I also used the vellum option.  My top two layers are popped up off of the lighthouse layer with foam tape, so it gives a nice dimensional look.  I sponged on the clouds using a Taylored Expressions stencil and sponged on the "light beam".  I also sponged ink on the blue layer through a sunburst stencil.  I thought I might look like light beams coming from the light in the lighthouse, but ummm . . . maybe not so much.  Still, it adds a fun, subtle element.  I stamped the sentiment on the vellum strip several times using my mini MISTI to get a nice, dark impression. 
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you check out the House blog for the full details and to see what the rest of the DT has created.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out the 10% off your entire order coupon over in my left side bar.

Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle (the smaller one) and "Blueprints 12" stitched rectangle (the larger one); Spellbinders "Standard Ovals, large"
Taylored Expressions stencils: Clouds and Sunburst

The first thing I thought of when I saw your card was the cool way you used the frame and blue light beams to enhance the lighthouse theme, so yes! You achieved your goal! It looks fantastic.

I love the clouds and the birds in the background. It's a very beautiful card. Thanks for sharing it with us for our Cut it Up for our Birthday challenge!

What a beautiful "belated" card - the sunburst stencil around the frame really sets everything off Then there is just a little bit of yellow sunshine. Great job.
