Christmas in July Challenge - Life is a beach

Hello, today I worked in the Christmas in July Challenge sponsor by Bitten by the bug 2.  I create a card that was in my mind for a long time and finally was created.  The Cartridge used was CCR Basics and Life is a beach.

 The main frame was cut 7"x5". Then the base for the picture was cut from Room Basics - Round Square 6.5" x 4.7". The picture I used originally was 4"x6" but I trimmed the sides.

 From Life is a Beach I cut the palm trees in two sets, and one was flip to be in the other side of the frame.


The words Merry Christmas was cut using George and Basics, cutting two: standard and another set in shadow. Also with this cartridge I cut 2012 using the charms and a background charms to all. The detail with the ribbon was to hold the years and give some dimension to the frame.

To show the labels I used the foam mats in all the levels.  I hope you like it and we can celebrate again Christmas in July!
