A Beach Christmas

Hi Stampers
I got a cool card to show ya tonight. I made this one for the Tis The Season Stamping Challenge. It's an Inspiration Photo challenge this time.

 Since I live in the Snow belt, this is not a Christmas Card I would ever of thought to make. I always think of snow and pine trees not sand and the ocean. I do love this card.

My card base is Bliss Blue and the mat is Creamy Caramel. I used black Stazon ink to stamp the images which came from 3 different sets.
The Star fish is from SU Fishy Friends, the ornaments and the sea shells are from Paper Trey Ink. I did a little masking and colored them with water color pencils. I got a little mark on the whisper White that didn't long there so I used SU's Gorgeous Grunge to cover it up. Looks like sand perfect!. The sentiment is from Hero Art.
Here's a shot of the inside and the envelope

that star fish just add a little touch of silly I think.
Thank you for stopping by
