A Summer Day…

Claudia_Rosa_Cuba_1
Our challenge on Just Magnolia is to create a Summer inspired card… use Summer images or your favorite color combo that says for you Summer is here Smile
it’s definitely here in Michigan we have had some really hot days and I can not wait to go take a dive in a pool today. yippee..

Well.. an other easel card, lol.. it was just so much easier to show off those pretty Magnolia papers. Usually I must say I do love the paler coloring other girls do with distress inks along with the papers. I guess that’s why I worry a lot when I consider to use them but I think my brighter coloring style actually does work on this card. Well… at least today, I really like how it looks Smile

I used a combination of all new stamps from the new Summer Memories Collection.
Flip Flop Tilda – I must say I wished she would not wear a traditional Hawaiian skirt… if she had a regular skirt on I felt she would be more versatile. The Cuba sign on the car and a Hawaii Tilda does not really work for me together.
