This is SUPER awesome, Stacy! I never would have identified those bright colors on the map. It's so subtle, yet rich. Not bright, though. It's gorgeous, perfect, and I absolutely love it. Your lighthouse image is colored beautifully, too. Really love your card design!

I love what you did with this stamp set. I was tempted to use it, but then changed my mind. It definitely would not have come close to the way yours just stands out. Gorgeous.
