Happy Holidays - Tropical Style

Hi, everyone, Kelli here!  For today's card I wanted to follow the challenge for this week which is coloring black hair.  You can head on over and check out the challenge post and play along by going here.  I thought it would be fun to make a card like some of the ones I see in the stores around here.  They are the ones that have a sand snowman on the beach or Santa in a beach chair in front of the water and you're supposed to send them to people that don't live in the warmer climates.  Well, I used Hula Anya by The Greeting Farm and decked her out in Christmas colors!

I stamped Anya in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics:
Hair:  C9, C7, C5, C1, B32
Skin:  E23, E21, R24 for cheeks
Reds:  R29, R27, R24, R22
Greens:  G07, G05, G03, G02

I used the SP & Company - Ultimate Sentiments I set for the 'Happy Holidays' sentiment which I heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I actually trimmed some of the excess photopolymer off the edges of the stamp so it was thinner and easier to curve.  I was a little nervous to actually cut one of my stamps, but everything went fine, haha!
The patterned paper that I used for the scalloped circle is from the Let it Snow - Dovercraft 4.5"x6.5" Paper Pad.  I love the smaller paper pads for card making, they're awesome!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  :)
