High Hopes Challenges #49~ Non Traditional Christmas


I wish to follow my darling High Hopes Divas to make non traditional Xmas card this week, so time is very important for me because I really don't have much spare time recently. Finally, I do hope this card didn't dissapoint you all , who have waited so long for the very cute " tropical santa".

I know many of you googled "tropical santa" for some ideas to make christmas card, so I choose this stamp this week for this challenge, and....please forgive me, that's NO snowflakes in tropical:=))
Supplies used:
High Hopes rubberstamps
Basic Grey Patterned Paper- Eskimo
Martha Stewart Punches
Prima Marketing flowers & Pearls
Color pencils, paper stumps & Sansodor for the color blending
Tsukineko Memento Inks pad
You can pop to High Hopes challenges blog to view the beautiful cards from my fellow divas, and three of them have online stores that carry High Hopes stamps, they are:
Amy Wegener - Stampin' Stuff based out of Australia
Nikki Fairbairn - Bunny Zoe's Crafts based out of the UK
Lacey Stephens - Stamp and Create based out of the US
Happy stamping and have a great day !
