Cherry Pool Birthday

I have an unexpected day off work today due to my youngest having an Open Day at what will be his new school next year.  That only lasted half a day so I had the afternoon to stamp in peace!

I decided to make a card for this week's color challenge at Dynamic Duos and the sketch challenge at Seize the Birthday
My idea when I started this card was to have a white base with Pool Party as the main color and just a hint of Cherry Cobbler, but when I laid down the DSP on top of the base, it just seemed to work, so Cherry Cobbler is the star of this show!

Both Pool Party pieces are textured - the banner using the Cloudy Day EF and the horizontal strip using Fancy Fan EF.

Thanks for looking.
