Photo - Christmas in July - Day 6

Today is day 6 of the fun Christmas in July event over at Catch the Bug. 1 week, 7 challenges, different prizes - you can read more about it here.

Today we have photo challenge for you. I was inspired by the sand and sea and the neat and clean feel of this photo.
I masked my Santa then started sponing with blue DI through a Memory Box stencil to make the waves. I colored the Santa and the sand and pebbles with Promarkers. Added two red sentiment stickers.
I've been trying to create a bit different styled Christmas cards this year and focusing on them being postage friendly, I believe that this one fits the bill.

This card is also for:
Inkspirational - #112 Anything Goes with Red
Allsorts - #371 One For The Boys
Cardz 4 Guyz  - #128 - Christmas in August
Cards und More - # 162 Summer Fun, Beach, Sea

This is SO COOL, Pia !!! Love your waves Background and the Focus on Santa at the Beach. Really great !

PS: I have question for the Freebie Friday and Color Challenge tomorrow: Did we have to use the Freebie from tomorrow 7/15 ? That means i have to wait to create my Project or can i use the Current Friday Freebie or another Image ? I would be thankful for a Little note. THANKS !!!

wow, Miss Pia! Does this EVER feel like a Caribbean-Tropical Christmas! Love those flowing waves from your stencil, and all that sandiness covering Santa! I suppose that will keep him from getting sunburned? It's a fun, delightful card! Hope you enjoy a great week-end! hugs, de
