Childhood Memories at Sweet Stamping~DT Card

Hello Girl,

Over at Sweet Stamping this week the theme is "Childhood Memories", and our sponsor this week is Tiffany Doodles.
It was an easy challenge for me, mind you I have that many childhood memories myself that the only problem I had was choosing which one.
My sister and I used to spend most of our childhood at our local beach. We used to go down and stay all day, fishing, paddling, and collecting shells etc.
Mum used to go too, and dad came on the weekends when he was not at work.
Well! because of this I have chosen an image of a little girl collecting seashells for my DT card, hope you like it.

So for todays card I have used a stamp by "Stamps Happen" and it is appropriately called "Collecting Sea Shells".

This was a stamp I bought from a craft fair, a lady I knew was selling it. I think she wishes she had not let it go (she bought a card I made last year using it and said she wishes she still had it) mind you I think it is really hard to find!!
To be honest it actually looks like me at that age!! I had the same colour hair and I had a dress just like this one too!...Ha Ha.

The papers used are Prima and I think they are so cute, the little girl in the right hand corner is making a sandcastle! I have coloured the image with Pro-Markers, and have added a couple of Hobbyhouse pearls.
The shell stamp is a Magnolia, they were in the sale at Christmas and have been very useful on beach cards, as is this fab MS beach punch, I love it.
This gorgeous "Kite" is also a stamp and is by American Crafts and I got this set as part of a "Walk in the Park" set with lovely papers and ribbon from QVC a couple of weeks ago, I think it goes with this card very well. As I have raised the kites on foam pads I had to add the strings by hand, but this is very similar to how they are on the actual stamp.
I have used a bit of Stickles in Stardust, just to accent the sand and edges of the card.
