Birthday Card Set - a light house on a stitched background

You can go here to see why I am making these cards.
I started with a white card front which I edged with a dark blue ink pad.  I took two strips of decorative paper, tore the side of one and then laid them next to each other offset just a bit.  I machine stitched them together using black thread and then glued them to my card front.  I added a dark blue layer to my trimmed image of a light house which I took in PEI many years ago.  I added a laser printed greeting to the bottom and trimmed it with decorative scissors.  I adhered this focal element to my card front using double sided tape.  I tried to center it but it just did not seem right so off to the side it went!!
