MFT 177

Hi Bloggers, I've been debating whether to post this on my blog or not. Something about it seems a little amateur-ish. We all know every card can't be a stunner. So I'll post it anyway. Wish I had threaded the button with twine. It was late and I was tired I guess. 

I followed MFT sketch challenge 177. I heat embossed the MFT lighthouse in gold EP and doodled some dashes with a gold pen. I used MFT More Essential Sentiments in Momento Paris Dusk ink on the banner shape. After hand cutting a shell from the K&Co paper I added some MS punched "coral", twine and a button. The punch is a branch punch.
Anywho, I'm sure my Uncle will like it as he recovers from surgery.
