Summer Screen Door

Hello all!! We had a beautiful weekend here in Western NY! And, it was a fun one, too! Sunday was just for relaxing and taking a walk. Friday night was going out with friends to celebrate a birthday and Saturday was a terricic hike down into a gorge where there's a beautiful waterfall. Good times.

 Tilda, here is having a good time too. I used TILDA WITH MAGNOLIA BRANCH from (where else?) MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS.  She is from the Summer Memories collection and now the minis are in stock too!!  I cut her out and have her sitting on the Magnolia bench that has been around for awhile, but is always handy for the sitting images.  My papers, both inside and out are from Diana's store, too!  They are richly covered and a nice heavy weight to work with.  These two came in my mmcc club kit from Diana.
 Here is Tilda in a close photo. Her bench is actually stamped on Sahara Sand and then colored with w1, 3 and 5.  The screen door is from Buffalostamps. com. She has a brick and mortar store, but will also mail out some die cuts and screen.  Sharon (store owner) created this die a couple of years ago and it is perfect for summer cards!  Remember when your mom would say, "Don't slam the door!" in the summer time? With 6 children, I think my mom said it ALL the time!
 
I used Kittie's tutorial (she has a lot of great ones on her sidebar) for the flower wreath. I recently bought the Memory Box flower mound die for the very tiny flowers that are on the wreath and in the grass.
Thanks for coming by today! Wishing you a productive and happy Monday!
Cheryl
P.S. Remember we have a challenge up at Magnolia-licious that we'd love for you to join in on!!
You can find it on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog   We are looking for your summer themed cards!!  (AND, our 2nd May challenge is coming soon!)

This is just so perfect! I like your door better than the door die that I have. Your coloration is just perfect as always - and the wreath - the wreath is to die for! Bravo!
