Christmas by the beach

Hello again crafty friends!  Today I have another tropical type Christmas card to show you.

The wreath can be used for any occasion and since I live in Florida it is perfect for me to use for Christmas.  I made two versions of the same card.  The one above used tradition blues, pale pinks and neutral browns along with some pops of red to bring a little Christmas color into it.  You can’t tell from the photo, but some of the shells have little pops of glitter on them.  The image was colored with copics.

The second version has more red to tie into the holiday season and uses kraft cardstock to add a balance against the red.  The image is from Flourishes.

Thanks for stopping by – there are more holiday cards to show – hopefully I can get them posted before the Thanksgiving  activities take hold!
