Bathing Ring Tilda / Magnolia Stamp Lovers / Magnolia Down Under / Stamptacular Sunday

Summer is coming quick. The warmer weather is inspiring many challenge blogs to give summery challenges. The card I created is for the following challenges...

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Summer Theme
Magnolia Down Under - Flowers
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Life's a Beach
Just Magnolia - Hot and Spicy (just missed the cut off)

Stamps: Beach Tilda, Bathing Ring (Magnolia), Life's a Breeze (SU!)
Paper: Tempting Turquoise (SU!), DCWV Textured Cardstock and Citrus
Ink: Memento, Copics, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore
Accessories: Creative Memories Jazzy cutting tool, Flower Soft, Beads

I colored Tilda and her bathing ring with Copics. I should note that her hair has 6 colors in it, which was inspired by a friend's daughter who mentioned her hair naturally has 7 colors.

I used some beads that I found at Walmart to create a border for the card to rest against. They are strung together and mounted with Scor-Tape.

I used my retro flower punch to punch flowers out of my Citrus paper and added Flower Soft to create the Center.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

Wow, Julie, this is so awesome. Your shape is so delightful and the paper is perfect. I love that you actually used 7 colors on Tilda's hair! The beads are such a clever idea for the stopper and really add to the ambiance of the card. And while I'm here, thanks for joining us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week.
