Faith Group March Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!!!. Double post today!!!. Our Faith group have a challenge every month on the 31st and this month was my turn to hostess the challenge!!!. So I challenged everyone in the group with this description:

The Light of my Life!!!. I got inspired by the stamp set from Our Daily Bread "Light of the World". It has a lighthouse, which I'm a big fan of, and has my favourite sentiment that belongs to my favourite Hymn "The Lord is my Light and my Salvation Whom shall I Fear?.

1. Try to use a lighthouse in your project or something that represents LIGHT in your world/life.
2. Use at least two different scrap of designer paper.
3. Since the theme is light use some bling on your card/project.-

Since it was my month I tried to put a special meaning on it. The lighthouse and the beach represents my mother (she loves lighthouses like me We used to spend every summer at her house on the beach back home in Argentina, lots of wonderful family memories back there). The three pearls represents my three sons, the lights of my life (didn't use bling though, very masculine card I thought!!!). The Flourish represents the waves in the sea. The wheels??? in the designer paper represents my father (he worked all his life on ships travelling the world) last but not least the sentiment represents my husband (no need for explanations there!!!).


For this card I used:
Cardstock: Whisper White and Night of Navy from SU
Designer Paper: AHHHH!!! I can't remember the name and I can't find it either. I'll look for it and post it later, sorry!!! but it is from SU
Stamps: Light of the world from Our Daily Bread and the sentiment is from the set My how you've grown from MFT
Ink: Night of navy from SU
Accessories: Pearls from Recollections, Flourish die, First Prize award ribbon die, Oval star all from MFT. Scallop oval spellbinder and paper piercing tool kit from SU.

Thanks for looking!!!
