One Layer Wednesday (OLW) - Stamp a Scene

So this week's challenge issued by Susan R. on the Simplicity blog is to Stamp a Scene.  I knew instantly that I wanted to use this lovely lighthouse image that I got from Cornish Heritage Farms a few years ago.  However, I didn't know exactly what I would do with it.  In the end, I stamped the image with Close to Cocoa ink and then added the pale brown organza ribbon and a few sea shells for embellishments. 

This was a great CAS challenge becuase I do tend to color in this image (although I have created other cards HERE and HERE where the image is just stamped).  It is always fun to have alternative ways to use your stamps!! 

Off to see what other "scenes" are used in the challenge!

Seashells with a light house are a perfect match. I love the fact that you chose cocoa and the vintage look.

Such a pretty card! Lighthouses make great scene cards (I used one, too!) and are just so calming. They make great masculine cards too! Love your addition of seashells.
