For Your Inspiration Challenge # 7

Hello there! Welcome to another For Your Inspiration Challenge! Here is this weeks photo:



Lovely, huh? When I saw the photo the lighthouse stood out as well as the way the sunset is bursting through the sky. My new Tim Holtz paper I bought on clearance at Michael's was PERFECT to replicate that sky to me. It brought together the colors and also the "rays" of sun in a muted way. Look at the card and you'll {hopefully} see what I mean..lol.






I popped up the burgundy and patterned paper layers and then did a little distressing to the spiral paper panel. The sentiment is from the Verve set called Text Objects and it also goes back to that whole "lighthouse/ship/friendship" thing I was going for with this card. Hope you like it.  
Head over to the blog and take a look at what the other DT members have designed. You'll love it! And come and play along with us!!

As soon as I saw the photo all I could see is the sky .... we call it a Zwetschgen sky or in English Plum Sky ...... you got it perfect in this card girl and I cannot wait for plum season to make some Zwetschgen Strudel :)
