Jellypark Challenge Number 9 - Non-traditional Christmas Colours

Whoop it's challenge time again over at the jellypark friends challenge blog. We also have a fantastic new guest designer for November, Linda McClain. Linda makes absolutely beautiful cards and she has a wonderful blog called catered crop :o).
This time round the challenge is non-traditional Christmas, I love making Christmas cards using unusual colours, however on this occasion I decided to go one further and make a card which is going to be posted to a friend on the other side of the world. She will no doubt be spending Christmas Day having a BBQ on the beach so I figured this card was quite apt. Who says snowmen always have to be made out of snow, sand would work just as well :o), okay so technically it isn't then a snowman but you get my drift (pun intended).

This image is from the wonderful Jellypark Store and for the background I have used some Jellypark scrapbook elements like the sun, ice cream, starfish and bucket and spade. He is coloured with pro markers and then cut out and decoupaged (might regret that when I come to post it). I made him a little shell ensemble for the rim of his hat. 
That's all from me.
Happy Crafting Folks.
