Christmas Turtle and Dove

I have another Christmas card for Whimsy Stamps to share today.  And I used another cutie from Crissy Armstrong called Christmas Turtle and Dove.

This stamp is wonderful!  It's very cute, it's fun to colour, and there is no snow in sight!
I do love the look of snow on Christmas cards but we don't get snow in Australia at Christmas time and it's great to be able to make a card that fits our kind of Christmas too!

Hopefully you can tell that they are meant to be at the beach! :)
I brayered pool party, tempting turquoise and island indigo at the top and river rock at the bottom. I used some clear rock candy stickles to make little dots of foam for the waters edge and added some white gel pen to this too.  Then I added some fran-tage for the sand.

The sentiment is from Whimsy too and is a digi stamp called Sentiment for Christmas.  There are a lot of great Christmas sayings in it and you can make them as big as you like of course to suit your card.  That's the great thing about digi stamps.
