Christmas on the Beach

Hi there,

So I decided to make a Christmas card - with a summer twist - using the sketch from Jinglebelles.

So here is the One Layer Card I came up with:

I used the DoCrafts Digital Designer, with the Birdsong CD-Rom for the border strip and the shaped sentiment. I took the image from a google images search, and layered it into the program before printing the card. I then used a Clear Impressions stamp set to stamp the Nordic style heart over the digital elements. Initially I stamped with green and red (half and half), and then overstamped with black to make the image stand out a little more.

I would also like to add this card for the following challenges:
My time to craft #325 Christmas in July
Fussy and Fancy #168 Christmas in July
abc Christmas - O is for Overlay (Overlayed elements digitally)
Sweet Stampin' - Outdoors
Crafty Hazelnuts #291 Use a sentiment
CRAFT #373 Christmas
CCEE1629 Beaches
crafting by designs - Christmas in July

No time for extra pictures today I am afraid, but there are some new ones to share with you :D
