Tropical Santa!

Happy Tuesday!
It's Christmas in July over on the High Hopes Blog! This month the Design Team is using Christmas themed stamps for a fun twist on our designs! When I saw "Tropical Santa" I knew I had to have him! He's a man after my own heart! A beach, a cool tropical drink and the sun..... doesn't get any better than this LOL!
I decided to use papers from the Carta Bella Beach Day 6x6 collection! I used the High Hopes "Ho Ho Ho" sentiment. Can't you just hear Santa laughing "Ho Ho Ho' while he relaxes on the beach? I popped up Santa and the sentiment with some foam squares to add some dimension to my card.  I finished off my card with some lime ribbon and YNS Gumdrops.
I couldn't decide which card I like better so I am showing you both of them. This card has the added palm trees for that true beach feel!
