Flashback Friday Challenge #12 - Summer Colours

Hi everyone another challenge has started over at Flashback Friday #12 this time they are asking for the first card you posted with Summer Colours.
(Remember you have to repost the card not link to the original post)

I had to dig all the way back to April 2009.
The thing I like about this challenge is seeing how much I have changed over time as I sift through all my posts for my entry.  I have also learnt that my cards tend to use Spring or Autumn tones.

On this card I have used some wonderful sailing boat stickers.  Water like paper for the ocean and torn some brown paper to create the rocky outlet for the lighthouse.  Then stamped up the word 'Summer' and cut each letter out.

P.S. I know of a great new challenge that is coming that this card would be perfect for. ;-)

Terrific Tuesday everyone.

P.S.  In the last couple of weeks someone posted how there husband came up with the idea of using canvases to create a lightbox.  Silly me, didn't bookmark the page and now I can remember which blog it was that I follow.  If you visit and it was you please can you let me know as I so want to have a go at it.  Thanks.
