Lighthouse Birthday

This card is for my Brother-in-law's birthday. He lives on Hilton Head Island so I thought the lighthouse would be nice for a card for him. I know these aren't the actual colors of Thomas Point Lighthouse but they worked with my paper. Call it creative license! The gorgeous stamp is from PSX. I colored it with Copic markers and watercolor pencils. The compass rose has crackle glaze over it. I took the photo while it was still wet so it looks better now. The happy birthday phrase is from Stampin' Up. I crocheted the twine that's along the bottom and secured it with metal brads. The main image is stamped twice so that the second one could be put on dimensional foam for a 3-D look.
