Festive greetings from the South to the North
My third post for today! With all the Christmas in July challenges, I used the opportunity to start with this year's collection. This is Giraffe mistletoe digi from Digistamp4Joy. This time I used colours of my country's flag as part of a challenge. Some of our native people does the most beautiful bead work and this time I thought I'll reflect it in my card. As I mentioned previously, Christmas in South Africa is in the middle of our summer holidays and is filled with sunny days next to a pool or beach. So snow flakes and reindeer does not quite fit our season. My husband used to tell our friends in France that Father Christmas comes with an agriculture tractor and trailer with the presents, in his red shorts and t-shirt, in South Africa. Though with this card I used a French sentiment stamp, for it will be heading North soon. The frame is from spellbinders and is called Fleur de Lis Rectangular.
