Day 6 Catch the bug Christmas in July

Thursday July 16, 2015
 
Day 6 Catch the bug - Christmas in July  Oldie but good Thursday and photo challenge.
 
 
 
Photo inspiration - just make a card / project using the photo below
 

This is the card I made using the image above.. I did not realize until now that I did not even put a sentiment on the card.. I think it probably speaks for its self.. Oh well. It's the greeting on the inside that will say the most. For those who are in the world that their summer is Christmas time.. this would be perfect. The card base is Kraft from the Kraft journal and the papers are dcwv, the sand is a piece of mme, the clouds are from my own cloud template. The flip flops are scraps. The image is Snowman bells   I cut off the bells and then since it's a beach scene I added the fish and sand dollar. I had to add the flip flops to complete the beach scene.

Now a santa on the beach is not what I thought I'd be seeing in a beachy challenge at Cards in Envy but this is so fun. Great use of your photo inspiration. Appreciate your entry and wish you good luck. Take care.
