MC July - Digi - Umbrella Xmas

I was lucky to win a Digi image from Shelly's Images called Island Life. I loved the umbrella and chair, and with permission, separated it from the whole. I added holly leaves to make it an Xmas card for a friend braving the winter while I'm relaxing in the sun... BIG GRIN

I included pieces of real shells too.

The word "Christmas" is a Quietfire Design stamp and the rest is my lettering.

Click on card to see details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.
