Make the Day Special July Challenge!

A really interesting challenge this month at Make The Day Special, to use your Christmas stamps to make an "anything but Christmas" card! So I dug out all my favourite Lawn Fawn sets and had a play, and came up with this beach scene. It was definitely a challenge, but fun too - any excuse to use that narwhal! (obviously not usually found at the beach, the clue is in the "Critters in the Arctic" name, but never mind!)

I have used stamps from three different sets for this: Critters in the Arctic, Joy to the Woods and Deck the Halls. The shell is a sideways Christmas ornament, I think I've got away with it! And the birthday sentiment is of course not from a Christmas set, it's by Avery Elle, and I've stamped in pink and added Glossy Accents which has smudged slightly :(

Like I said, definitely a fun card to make! Thanks for stopping by!
