Tilda at the Beach!

Hi! I've had this masked card in my mind for awhile! Well, probably since I got the beach background, like I said, AWHILE! (Please read below for the winner of the La La Land stamp) I masked the three stamps. First, Tilda, then the bridge deck and, finally, the beach scene. I think it looks like a photo you might find in Tilda's summer 2010 scrapbook! Thinking on it after, I wish I would have stamped another Tilda to cut out and place on top, but since I haven't masked in some time I went with that. My stamps are all from Magnolia-licious. they are #614 (ocean background, #526 (bridge deck) and I don't know the number for Tilda. She seems to be out of stock right now. Please check with Diana on this. #245 Tilda in Swimsuit would work very nicely, too!
You may think a beach would never work this way, with sand and then water (AND a pier, no less!), but there is a beautiful beach in Ogunquit, Maine that is just like this. It's sort of a huge sandbar beach. All I did was add a little black pen and some dots on the bottom sandy edge. I'm okay with it! Hope you like, too!
Well, I'm itching to get going on some fall cards, so those will be on their way soon. First, we (the Magnolia-licious DT) have a VERY special Blog Hop for you on Monday, Aug. 16!
Now, I would like to share my winner of the stamp from LaLa land chosen from the comments on THIS POST. There were 37 comments, thank you!!
The winner is: comment number 18-Jenny V! congratulations, Jenny! Please contact me at drowley6@stny.rr.com as soon as you get a chance! Thanks again, everyone!
Enjoy the day! Cheryl
