Tropical Santa

This is my card for the Photo Inspiration challenge in Bugaboo’s Fifth Annual Christmas in July week long event, this is the photo:


I decided to go with the beach theme and used the fun image Tropical Santa - Surfboard,  I coloured him with Spectrum Noir markers and my papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Modern Christmas collection.


I fussy cut Tropical Santa and mounted him onto a die cut circle, the sentiment is from Craftwork cards.


I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

Catch The Bug Christmas in July - Photo Inspiration Challenge
