Growing In Unity Day Three

Welcome back for Day Three of my Growing In Unity week. Thank you all for the kind comments. I will picking 2 winners at the end of the week for a chance at winning a grab bag from Unity Stamp Company.  Now onto my card that I have to share today.
Paper for card base: Close To My Heart- no sure which collection
Stamp Set: Unity Stamp Company Realize
Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black 
Coloring Medium: Faber Castell Gelatos Pastel
Accented With: Gelly Roll White and Metallic Silver pens so her hair and the cloud will stand out
I'm not really sure on the size of the card. I stamped the image on typing paper and then decided to color it in with my gelatos instead of colored pencils. I then cut out the image and cut the paper out based on the size of the image. I have a few friends in mind that I could send this card, too, but not sure who yet. I love lighthouses- thus the reason for the "salnclts" in my blog link. Sal is short for Salamander a college nickname and "nclts" is short for North Carolina lighthouses. In other words, I  bought this stamp set, because I love lighthouses. That's all I have to share for today. Please come back tomorrow to see what I have to share and a chance to win some stamps! Happy Hump Day!
