Cornish Heritage Farms Birthday Challenge

Hello and welcome here to my second post today! It's time for another Cornish Heritage Farms Challenge.

The winner receives:
 $10 Gift Certificate and a Winner's Badge to put on your Blog.  
 The Challenge runs for 2 weeks, so you have lots of time to join!

 Lisa has chosen:
Happy Birthday Card or Tag
To play create a card using CHF images. You can use either CHF digi or rubber stamps to create a card or project.... anything you like as long as the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. (Yes, they can be older stamps.)

Once you have created your card/project go to the CHF Blog and place a comment with a link to your card/project to this post so that we can see what you created. If you upload your card/project to SCS don't forget to include the keyword CHF03. We can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my creation for some birthday inspiration.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I love this lighthouse, it's a digital stamp and is called Lighthouse 3, it's available in the store right now!  I chose my papers first which determined what colours I was going to use (and no, I didn't realize that the design was centered so nicely, lol). I chose cooler colours as opposed to warm colours.  I also chose to make a frame, and cutout for my card.  I used vellum, coloured clouds onto it, and placed it over the cutout.  You can see the effect of the light shining through the card below.
So when the card stands open on display, light will shine through...of course not as much as I'm showing here, but it gives it a nice glow.

Here are the different layers.  I cut out the lighthouse and added foam squares behind it to give dimension. I also added them to the frame.
Here's the inside of the cover.  I don't usually like a messy look, but I figured if they see a few foam squares it's not the end of the world...I think the outside more than makes up for the few they'll see.
