In(k)spire Me Celebrate You

I hadn't played with the In(k)spire Me challenge for a while, so I thought I'd give it a go!  It's got colors and/or sketches, so I decided to use both...and the colors were a challenge:

I searched my stash for some DSPs, took Sailing Home off the shelf and went to work:

I stamped the lighthouse in Pretty Peacock and added some "light" with some Crushed Curry ink, and colored in the water with Seaside Spray.  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays was also stamped with Crushed Curry ink.  I added some "rope" embellishment from the matching die set too:

The colors were a challenge, but I loved the sketch!  I am also entering this in a new-to-me Make The Cards challenge, which is Masculine!   

Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

Great masculine card. I wonder if that set will be retiring? I'm anxiously awaiting the retirement list today and the pdf of the new catty. It makes being a demonstrator worthwhile.

Mad for the plaid - always a go-to when it comes to masculine cards, right?
Very handsome birthday card for any guy!

I love this card. Definitely saving it. Great use of those colors and the subject matter is perfect.

Leann this is gorgeous! My neighborhood has a tiny lighthouse by a pond and all the streets are named after towns that have lighthouses on the coast. I just love this! Thank you for joining us at Make the Cards Challenge this week!
