Beacon of Hope
This beacon of hope card is for a dear friend. The vertical "gate fold" card uses the lighthouse from Close to My Heart stampset C1499 "Perfect Day" is worked in a pale gray (pencil gray) and pencil and charcoal on heavy watercolor paper-- and accented with Stickles Platinum rays. The inside is a lighthouse picture stamped over with the Harriet Beecher Stowe quotation, "Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." The scripted paper is by Teresa Collins in her World Traveler paper collection. The way this is folded, when open, it will perch like an easel card on the bottom of the lightouse.
