Holiday Special Issue Blog Hop

Hi, everyone! Today I am joining Amber over at Damask Love (and lots others) showcasing cards that were rejected for the Paper Crafts "Holiday Special Issue" publication.  I just love that she does this!  It kinda softens the blow just a little bit by allowing others to see your work.  

SO, they had a call to make a Christmas card using non-traditional Christmas product.  I wasn't sure exactly what they meant by that so I made one card using a beach theme!  I thought it was pretty cute!  Ha!  Here it is:
I started off using Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Card Stock in Kraft (swoon!--I love Gina's extremely high quality card stock!), then using Melanie Muechinger's "Gifts from the Sea" to make the tree.  The banner came from Nina Brackett's "Christ is Risen" set and the sentiment from her "Fanciful Tags" set.

 I did think it was cute but I also realized I was taking a risk by using a beach theme.  I'm looking forward to seeing what did make the cut for the call, as I really wasn'T sure what they were looking for.

Now, we are moving to Portugal this summer so I'm thinking I can still use this card for Christmas!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
