Summer lovin'

I have a lovely set of stamps by Personal Impressions (27279) that all have shells and seaside themes so I decided to get out my rarely used ColorBox inks and make this card. First I embossed the shells in white then rubbed over inks in Bisque, Seaglass and Papaye Cream. I then stamped the little girl on the beach with Dove StazOn and watercoloured the image with Whispers Pens. The ribbon, fibre, mother of pearl charm and starfish charm are from my stash.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot - Lazy Hazy Days of Summer
Allsorts - Summer Days
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Summer Holidays
