Tropical Christmas

This is the Chistmas card that I should really be mailing out soon if it's to arrive to its destination before Christmas.  My Father-in-law and his spouse spend their winters in warm climates away from the snow and cold.  Lucky them! 

I pulled out my unused (until now) CTMH Tropical Christmas stamp set and some SU DSP and created this card.  The sentiment is from Contempo Christmas (SU).  To color the image, I just used inks and my blending pen.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper:  White Daisy and Black CS (CTMH); SU DSP - not sure what it's called
Stamps:  Tropical Christmas (CTMH), Contempo Christmas (SU)
Inks:  Black (CTMH), Creamy Caramel, Always Artichoke, Yoyo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Real Red (SU Stampin Spots)
Other:  Blending pen (CTMH), Blue gems (Michaels), Scallop border punch (SU), Large Circle Cutter (Martha Stewart)

I must admit - it does look like that around here! Tee, hee.

What a great card - and what fun to send it to a "snow bird" (I mean that term with love).
