LightHouse ~ Keeping The Lamp Burning

Happy Tuesday Friends!
I created this card for today's SCS Color Challenge #CC254 --> which is to use: Bashful Blue, Ruby Red, Soft Suede (close To Cocoa) & Neutrals of Choice. I had all intentions on also following this week's Mojo Sketch #122, but I kinda got off track once I started layering the panels! LOL! For this card Im using this wonderful old favorite LightHouse stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs called; "Keep My Lamp Burning".
