Lighthouse good bye card

Hello and happy Wednesday!
Today I want to show you a card I made for some friends/colegues that are leaving soon and as they need to think what to do in future I thought a lighthouse as a symbol of guidance and the verse I choose from the Bible it´s also to encourage them in this time of decision making process.

The lighthouse is by From the Heart Stamps and I colored it with Koh.i.noor aquarelable pencils. I placed it on a red cardstock mat and glued with foami tape to give dimension.

The background is blue cardstock and I used Swirls embossing folder (Sizzix) that makes me remeber the sea (my friends are going to the beach, really!!!).

The only embellishment is a white string and I made some knots (sailor's knots?). (Just a note, the string is recycled for a blind that broke and I kept the string because I thought I can use it one day...)

I hope you like my CAS card, and hope my friends also like it.

  7. A very beautiful card Adri, and I´m sure your friends are going to love it too. I like the texture from the embossingfolder, you´ve used and the wonderful bright colors too, and then I just really love, that you reused the string from that broken blind. That´s what I do all the time, and I think it´s sooo cool, when some old broken things, can get a new era on a card like this. That´s just perfect in my world.
