You're My Beacon

So here is this weeks FREE digi image from Hambo Hoedown and this is the tag I made with the Free images.  There was ONE TWIST to this also had to used wood, wood print, wood stamped images, etc., etc. you get what I mean.  I still have some of these large laminate samples laying around here that have a wood grain design so I figured "why not?" I colored and cut the image out then layered it onto a die cut that I had darkened the edges with a colored pencil.  I wanted the beacons that light houses put out, so I found a gold vellum that worked perfect!  I cut the flowers with the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die using an OLD piece of stash background papers I found at the bottom of the drawer.  I put a sparkly in the center of each flower an then more at the top.  I printed the sentiment out and used a weathered wood frame from Printshop to frame it.  A tad bit of lace at the bottom and a sheer glittery ribbon at the top and a few pieces tucked around the flowers finished it off.  I think this is the first project that I have used more of my "old" stash than any in a long time!!! LOL I really need to dig to the bottom of the scrap drawers more often, maybe start at the bottom and work up :o Here is the blog addy again for Hambo Hoedown:    Great digi images and some fun challenges!!!
Thanks for stopping I'm off to get some scrapbooking done.
