Lighthouse

Todays share has been made for one of the girls at work, who was 60 last week. All I knew was she likes the seaside & gardening lol....she loved the end result & is putting it in a frame in her bedroom.
I made it for the latest challenge over at Inspiration Destination, where as always the theme is

I loved putting this card together, getting out some older dies & using them again was great.
