FINALLY, a card!!

You know I love my Magnolias!  What better way to get back in the swing than with the current monthly challenge over at Magnolia-licious!! 
Currently, we'd love to see your creations with summer colors!!  I've used #110 EDWIN IN MIAMI (sorry, he's out of stock, but available to order)  from the most current collection in Diana's store, but you can use ANY Magnolia image!  Diana always offers great prices, a buyer rewards program AND great service!

 I've used a Pool Party card base, then a layer of Apricot Appeal (why, oh why did SU discontinue this color?!!).  The dp is an older one from Paper Adventures called Island Lagoon Seashells.  I bought all I could find a couple of years ago.  It is my favorite paper! I hate to cover it up!  I thought the MFT vine die cut would look a bit like sea weed and I didn't want to go all out with flowers so I just went with button blossoms.  Another favorite is my Martha Stewart seashell border punch.  The plaid paper is from PTI.
 Here's my close up.  I used a combo of YRs and Es (peachy colors) on his shirt.  His shorts are BG10, 11 and 72.  Skin is my usual E000, R30 and E11.
Thanks so much for sticking with me!!
And, thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Cheryl

Awesome card Cheryl! Your coloring is stunning (but then it always is) and I love how you softened down the colors with pastels and muted tones! The layout and design elements here repeat the theme of Edwin perfectly! Hugs...Barb <><
