So pretty, Pat. I love that verse with this scene. Really like the sparkle in your water, too. Makes it looks like the sun is shining down.

Those shells are a nice addition to your layout. I've been taking out my chalks recently. They're so subtle. Nice card!

How lovely and soft in the chalks!! WOW!

Like the nautical feel of these cards. Especially like the shells. I like all things Lighthouse. Just entered the Summer challenge again since I so want to win the Lighthouse stamp set being offered to challenge winner. Have visited several Lighthouses. One time when visiting the Lighthouse on TyBee Island off the coast of Savannah, GA the power went out while we were walking up the steps of the lighthouse. They did not charge us admission since they had no power to run our credit card thru and considered the no power a free day.

Pat--what a beautiful card! I love the added sea shell buttons! Great addition. And your card from yesterday is FABULOUS! I love the real pins in the pin cushion. Sorry that I didn't get to comment yesterday, but my BFF's dog is very sick and she was really upset last night. TFS

Donna Ellis said...

Pat, your card says "serenity" -- soft colors, gentle image, natural embellishments - very pretty card.
