A Light unto My Path

No, this is not the same layout, but it is close! I borrowed my friends Scor-Pal and Scor-It yesterday to see which one I like best. While visiting the Scor-Pal's website I saw a grid card done by Judy Jackson. It inspired me to try this with my new Stampin' Up! set, A Light unto My Path. I first scored around the outside of a So Safron card 1/2" from the edge. I also scored a 3 x 4" piece of Confetti White card stock in 1/2" intervals. Seeing how this was a sample I did not think I would be finishing, I used my Elegant Eggplant Ink to stamp the lighthouse. (I did cut it down a bit to fit the stamped image) I colored it using my Pure Color Pencils, roughed the edges, added some layered card stock, Grosgrain Ribbon and the saying at the bottom. I love how it turned out.
What do you think? Also, what scoring tool do you like best? Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.

You've made two *wow* cards recently that made me want to buy the sets...even though they weren't on my "must have" list: 1. Never Ending Joy and 2. Light Unto My Path. I loved the verse that came with this, but I just wasn't too sure about the lighthouse. The grayed-out image in the catty didn't inspire me..and neither did their pale, un-exciting card. Thanks! This is gorgeous!
I still use my old Fiskars cutting/scoring 12" tool..I'll have to check out complaint with Fiskars is that you have to completely remove the scoring or cutting tool every time you use a full 12x12 sheet.
Thanks for sharing! Love it! =)
