Summer Christmas Tree

We have Christmas in the middle of summer, so our icons are different from a winter Christmas.  This EF has NZ birds and flowers as well as a pair of jandals/thongs/flipflops.  We usually spend Christmas outdoors at the beach or somewhere cool.

I diecut a scalloped triangle (Spellbinders) and sponged distress inks on using the negative cut as a stencil to highlight the items, and then used a gold Sharpie for the big star and silver for the small ones.  I matted it onto silver metallic paper.  I like the simple look which is quite deceiving as it took ages to do!
