Lighthouse Card - My Pink Stamper Challenge

I just recently got the Life is a Beach cricut cartridge and to use the lighthouse cut to make a Father's Day for the challenge on the My Pink Stamper blog.  The card is 4 1/2" X 6". I cut the lighthouse and its layers at 3 1/2". I had some paper in the DCWV Stack 6 paper pack that looked like sand and used a cut from Everyday Paper Dolls that I cut it at 4 1/2" in width using the Real Dial Size button. The sea gulls are also from the Lifes a Beach cartridge and cut them at 1 1/2". The clouds and seashells are from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. I used some gray chalk to provide some definition to the clouds and the sea gulls. I also used some maize colored chalk to provide some definition to the sand and the scallop shell. The star fish I used some peach colored chalk on top of it to give it an orange tinge to look like the star fish I see at our beach. I also used the new Hide Contour feature on my Gypsy to hide the face that would typically cut out on the star fish. I love that feature of the new update released today. The stamp is a Studio G $1 stamp that I picked up at Craft Warehouse. Thanks for looking.
