Christmas in July - Thursday Event

Today is a photo challenge, this one was definitely a challenge.

This one took a little thought, I just don't see the beach in Christmas, but the Design Team sure had some great cards with this photo.  They said use what comes to mind and this is what I came up with.  It's not your traditional Christmas card, but I really liked how it came out.

The snowflakes are stamped with blue ink, then heat embossed with a Holographic embossing powder.  This gave them a real shimmery sparkly look.

The sentiment is from Anna Griffin and was heat embossed with clear embossing powder.Challenges:
