Stampin' Up! Sunkissed Christmas Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to our Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. Here is what I created for our color challenge today...

and here are the colors...
My card base is Real Red cardstock, with a mat of Garden Green and a Basic White art panel that I sponged with Pool Party ink and Crumb Cake ink.

I used a mask, created with a die from the Basic Border Dies and a piece of Window Sheet, to create the clouds with Pool Party ink. The sun is cut out of a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock with a die from the Palms Dies

I stamped the beach umbrella/chairs from the Sunkissed Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink. The colors of the beach chairs are Real Red and Garden Green Blends and markers. The hat is colored with a Light Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends.

The palm trees, from the Sunkissed set, are colored with Garden Green and Early Espresso Stamp N Write markers. I put the stamp on my Stamparatus so I could color everything separately, including the dune.  

The sentiment is stamped in Garden Green. The only thing missing from this scene is water. I've seen enough of that after two hurricanes...lol.

For the inside...

The sentiment is from the Merriest Moments Stamp Set stamped in Pool Party ink, although it almost looks like Garden Green. The pelican and shells are from the Sunkissed set and are stamped in Early Espresso ink.

I'm entering my card in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #187. With the green on my palm tree, mat, sentiment and chairs, along with the pelican inside, I went from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Thank you, Stef, #tttc187!
