June Challenge card-Water, water, everywhere!!

Hello!! I have been a hopeless slacker with my blog and I am so sorry!  Work/school is really beating me up these days!  We've had nice weather so I've also had to focus on getting flowers planted.  And, then there's just the simple problem that i don't know where the time goes!
But, today I have a card for Mindy's excellent June challenge-to use something on your card having to do with water.  I love, love, love all my summer Tildas so it was hard to choose. I settled on TILDA IN KEY LARGO  ( link to the mini version) with the seashore background from a year or two ago.  If anyone has the numbers for these stamps, will you jot me a note, please? I am not able to find them anywhere!
But, YOU can check out the CHALLENGE HERE!

 I masked the image and the scenery into one image.  They are cut with different sizes of the spellbinders die from xpress it blending card, purely pomegranate and pool party.  The pool party layer is stamped (in baja breeze) with a wavy looking background called Elegant Fronds from JustRite cling stamps.  The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.
 I used some Stampin' Up brightly colored buttons and paper for the inside.  I haven't decided on a sentiment for the open area.
 And, here are a couple more photos.
I used E11 and E33 on the sand.  Her skin is R30, E000 and E11.  I think her hair is Y21 and E99.  The blues are BG10, BG11, BG15  and BG53.  Oranges are YR61. 04 and 18.  The pinks are RV14, 17 ann 19.
I'm also entering in challenge 163 at Cupcake Inspirations! and at Paper Players! And I've also entered in the new Tilda's Town challenge (Tilda/Edwin and accessory stamp) Take a look!
Thanks for coming by to have a look see.  I'll try not to be a stranger!  Please join us in the Water, water, everywhere challenge before June 30!!
Hugs and have a great day! Cheryl
