BUGABOO STAMPS' WEEKLY CHALLENGE

The challenge this week at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug blog forms part of the CHRISTMAS IN JULY celebrations, and the theme is

SHOW US YOUR SANTA

Here's my Santa :

I chose this image cos this is what Christmas Day on Durban's Main Beach looks like:


I coloured the image Tropical Santa - Tubing using Copics, and added Glossy Accents to the water.


To make up my card I used the following from my hoarded stash:

white CS card base
red CS bckground
beach hut printed DP
chippy "Merry" sentiment
chippy circle on a peg
gems
peel off corners and border
