Father's Day Card ~ Starry Night Lighthouse

I had a friend who asked for some Father's day cards so I am working on a bunch this weekend for her to chose from.
I had this idea a few days ago but just couldn't get my crafty mojo going. I just sat at my crafting table and moved things around. I sketched out a few other ideas but nothing came together. When I'm like that it is just best to walk away and come back later. Last night I cut out a bunch of the Cricut cuts I needed for the sketches and was finally able to get a couple of cards to come together the way I liked.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front frames 4.25 x 4  in. and 4 x 3.75 in.
*Card front 3.75 x 3.5 in.using the Bo Bunny  Camp-a-lot 6x6 pad.
*Sentiment stamp from the CardzTV "Happy Days" stamps set.
*Lighthouse and rocks stamps from Close To My heart.
*Ribbon from my stash.
*Jute from my stash.

May your day always be filled with love.
