Cheery Lynn Tropical Christmas

Hello and happy Thursday!  I'm hosting the Cheery Lynn Blog today with this new card inspired by the current CLD challenge, Non-Traditional Christmas Colors as well as the song Mele Kalikimaka which I can't seem to get out of my head lately.  :)  I thought some of the new travel dies from CLD latest release would be perfect for a tropical themed Christmas card.  I started by using the Circle Stitch & Cut Tool set to cut a large circle.  The center was then cut using a smaller die from the Circle Stitch & Cut Tool set to create the pink ring.  A piece of plastic toy packaging was then glued to the back of the ring to create the window.

The palm tree and surfboard are from the newly released Surf's Up die set.  They are hidden but I also added a couple of the grass clumps set on the ground. To finish off the scene I added a small stitched circle for the sun.  I then sprinkled iridescent fake snow on top of the little scene and trapped the snow by putting a layer of double sided foam adhesive all around the ring.

I hope you like the result.  I love making little scenes on cards and with the bright colors this was a fun one to create.
