SVGCuts - Java Jingle

Another one I'm in love with!  This one is from the Christmas Cheer kit

ATC Swap

Here's what I made for my first ATC Swap.  The theme is underwater/beach, and I love this stamp set so I just had to use it.  The background is using chalk.  I was trying to get the colors of sand, water, and a partial sunset.  Then I had to use the champagne mist to make it sparkle!

I can't wait to see the others I receive!
