It's Christmas in July

Well Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was relatively uneventful, but thankfully I have a new card to share today. It's a Christmas-in-July theme, and before you look, I'll explain just one part - the white background (two-tone) is done on glossy white cardstock and was brayered with Soft Sky on top and Creamy Caramel on the bottom. The Sky color didn't photograph very strongly and the little starfish background on the pomegranite layer is hard to see, but the dimension and color is always richer in person, right??

Sets: Do the Hula (palm tree), Crab & Company (everything else)
Colors: Purely Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi, Black, Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Blush Blossom (shell and clam)
Other: brayer, dimensionals, blender pens
