Life is better in Flip Flops.

Morning - Today's Dr Digi post is featuring Surfin Santa but I have decided a Santa is for life and not just for Christmas (By the way 169 sleeps until the big day...) I am still waiting for Summer to arrive nevermind Christmas and remain hopeful that a Beach will be on the agenda at some point and not just coloured in my imagination!

I cut all the flags from Echo Park I Love Summer collection and mounted the Flip flop sticker onto Black card and mounted them on 3D before I cut the edge of the card around them. 
I used a My Favourite things wonky stitched rectangle die to cut around my image and before I glued this in place I used letters to stamp my greeting.  

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the surfing dude - 
Shorts - Oasis, Frosted Jade & Island Lagoon
Flip Flops - True Blue & Sky Blue
Sand - Vanilla, pinapple crush, Mustard and Sleigh bells. 
Skin - Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral & Spice. 
Hair - Ice Grey 2 & 4. 
Surf board - Lemon & Canary with Grey shadow. 
Edged in Powder blue.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Paper creators - Just for men.
Julia Spiri - Beach / sea
Daring Cardmakers - Summer Party
Kitty Bee - Summer Fun
Crafting with Dragonflies - Summer Fun

Have a great day,
