Christmas In July Day Six

Melekalikimaka is the thing to say on this bright Catch The Bug Christmas In July challenge day!

Okay so I really over did it on the song this time, just couldn't help myself.  You'll understand when you see the challenge for today.

It's a photo challenge and Bugaboo Stamps has this awesome set of Tropical Santas that are perfect for it.

I chose to feature Tropical Santa-Suntan but he got a little sunburned lying around in the hot sand and sun.  He really should have put on his sunblock.  I mean, seriously, he spends most of his time covered from head to toe in fur, he had to know he would get a nasty burn.  Lol

The bold colors were inspired by the colors of the flip flops, the embossed background was inspired by the sand.  I sponged on clouds to mimic the clouds in the photo.  I used a combination of PSE 12 and Copics to color the image. I think this is my favorite from the week.  It's just so much fun!
My sister would love this card.  She spent many years living in Hawaii and every year she would wish me a Melekalikimaka!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for our Freebie Friday image and our final CIJ challenge 2014.

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN
