Deck the palms!

 Hi friends!

I love love LOVE winter!
I adore the snow and everything about the crisp chill of winter ♥

I do live in tropical sunny Miami
  so as they say ...
when in Rome!


Today's card is one of the many created for the Falliday card challenges
on Splitcoaststampers.
It's a series of challenges proposed by the hostesses
with different techniques and  tutoirals.
It's great fun!

My challenge was last week (I'll show you that soon!)  

I created this card for Janine's challenge:  Holidays in another climate.

 I used the adorable Newton's Nook Sun Soaked Santa for this card.
After lightly stenciling a background with sunbursts,
I stamped the palm trees and sentiment onto the cardstock.
I wanted a little more dimension so I stamped/cut the image again
and popped it up on foam dots.

For the inside, I carried over the theme and added another greeting.

I'll enter this into the current Inky Paws Challenge:

It's Friday and the start to the weekend!
I hope yours is going to be super!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
