Today I'm sharing a card made using two stamps from the Little Claire 'Seascape' set.  It's a really versatile set and also contains a yacht, life buoy and anchor - ideal for anyone who likes sailing or the sea.

I followed the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and matched the gingham paper to the colours I used for the lighthouse.  I added some kraft paper around the gingham and also the sentiment and a touch of ink round the oval stamped panel.  The Card Candi were also coloured to match my stamped image.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
