Beachy themed card.

This is a card that I've made for my Dad's birthday next week. It's called a Z-fold card, which is a technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter from the Aug/Sept 2007 issue. I've used beachy colours of blue and sand for this card. I used my oval Nestabilities for the lighthouse stamped piece. The 'Dad' is a little ceramic piece - think it's called a style stone, I got it from my LSS they told me somebody handmakes them for them.
This is the open view of the card.

Thanks so much for looking, and sorry I haven't posted much lately......................just never seem to get enough time to create at the moment.................hoping that will change soon.

Materials used:
Stamps: lighthouse is by The Old Island Stamp Company, larger bird is by Ink and The Dog, Swirl is by Autumn Leaves - Elegant Flourishes, greeting is by Wendy Irving Clear Expressions.
Ink: Archival Cobalt Blue.
