Totally Tropical

Hey there.   Hope you haven't been affected by the high winds today.
It's a bit gusty here, but the goldfinches are still managing to cling onto their bird feeder.
They do love their seed ;-)

Today I'm sharing a bright Christmas card with you.

I used a rectangle nestie to cut a piece of card for a mask, and added a strip
where my sentiment would go.
Then, I stamped my snowflake ornament in some tropical colours.
I removed the mask to stamp the sentiment.
Because the design is a little fussy, I chose a very plain sentiment,
but just stamping it once looked a little odd,
so it got the triple treatment ;-)

A few sequins were the finishing touch.

I'd like to enter my card for 3 challenges.

Winter Wonderland - Tropical Christmas
52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - A One Layer Card
Merry Monday -  Non-Traditional Colours

Stamp from the Crafty Impressions, Christmas Baubles Set.
Inks - Memento Dandelion / Tangelo   Versacolor Mint  Papermania Pink
Sentiment WPlus9 Heartfelt Holidays.   Sequins.

Hi Caroline - hope you are well and sorry for not having been around for a while.
Your card looks fabulous and love the different colours. Such a great idea to have the sentiment across the middle
