Beachy Season's Greetings

Greetings, Unity friends! For today's Friends With Flair, I'm sharing a beachy Christmas card I made for a dear friend. She, of course, has received it by now, so it's safe to trot it out.



I used Unity's Beach Cottage Collection and Ornamental Season Itty Bitty. I just had to add some texture with a torn strip of sand paper!

I'm linking up to:
My kids are home on Christmas Vacation until next Thursday, so I don't know how much I'll be around the ol' blog here. We are having fun playing and hanging out!

Thanks for stopping by!
Emily

Loving your beachy Christmas card! We had a bunch of snow dumped on us for Christmas and even though it is pretty the beach sounds pretty good right now:)

LOVE the sandpaper! It's the perfect backdrop :) How strange - our kiddos go back on Thursday too, and what's with that??

Kim Ross said...

The sandpaper is such a clever idea!! Your card reminds me of the ocean-y cards we used to send out when we lived in Fort Lauderdale. Now, however, we're in Boise and it's a lot colder!!

Lisa said...

I want to be where those star fish came from...brrr it's cold! Fun card Emily! Enjoy your Christmas break with the kiddos ;)

I am so sorry to have missed your posts. I have stopped by but they didn't show up for me until this morning. I think I need to refresh more often.
Your beachy Christmas stars are so fun and cheerful. So cute to add the sand paper. I am sure your friend was thrilled to bits with it!
Hope you had a great Christmas and New Years and are all rearing to go for 2013. Cheers! :)
