Another Post - 2 Cards - 2 Challenges

I have had this stamp set for awhile now from Sweet n Sassy Stamps, but have not used it until now. I love lighthouses. It looks like I am going to have to practice on my spraying technique for my Tattered Angels sprays. Any suggestions.
This was made using papers from my stash, with no name so I have no idea who manufactured them. I used copic markers for coloring and Tattered angels Jazz Blue Glimmer Mist for the sky.
I have entered this in Sweet Stop Sketches this week since their challenge was to use Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I really enjoyed working with this sketch. This was also the first time I have entered this challenge, but it won't be my last. LOL

Have you ever had a card that you just didn't like from the time you started it until you finished it, walked away from it, come back and fell in love with it? Well that is what happened to me with this one. I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't like it at first. Papers are Debbie Mumm. Colored with Copic Markers. Not sure who makes the poinsettia stamp. It had no name on it so I am guessing it was in the $1.00 bin at Pat Catans.
I have entered this one in Just Magnolia using their sketch this week. I have tweeked it a little to make my card look better and I used a rectangle card rather than a square one.

Both cards are wonderful! I love the look of the lighthouse with the vintage DP, and the way you did the beams of light from the lamp. Thanks for playing along with us at the Sweet Stop this week! :-)
