Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge
MMSC #15

I usually love to do cards with alot more bling and detail but, I am donating cards to my church's Fall Festival Silent Auction and I thought I would do more of a variety than my usual. God has created us all with different tastes :-) The Image I used is from ODBD--Light of the World set---reminds me of our trips to Door County, Wisconsin. That is where my husband's mother grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. Love that area!!! I did use red and yellow stickles on the windows and tower light but that doesn't show very well on the photos. This card gives me a very peaceful feeling.

Here is a close up of the lighthouse:

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Design

Lovely card. I love lighthouses and have several rubber stamps of them from the U.P. of Michigan. I have visited there a few times. The Midnight Madness Design Team wants to WELCOME you to our sketch challenge and we will be looking for you next week too!!
