Lighthouse Birthday MMSC50 CC267

This birthday card is for 2 challenges:
1. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC50 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2010/04/midnight-madness-sketch-challenge-50.html; and
2. Splitcoaststampers' Color Challenge - CC267 (basic gray, apricot appeal, sage shadow and neutrals) - found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=488289.
There are digital and rubber-stamped images. The cuttlebugged panel is sage shadow, but I sprayed it with shimmer mist, which turned it kinda turquoise, which I didn't really mean to do, but it did turn out pretty, at least in mho. lol tfl
