Treasured Memories.

Do you remember going to the beach and looking for shells along the high tide mark?  I do.  I loved the beach when I was a kid and still love walking along the beach when I get a chance.
This card was inspired by this card by Primia.
I love it.  Thanks Primia.

OK, I started with a base of  Stampin' Up Naturals White.  Next layer is Night Of Navy.   The dsp is Fab Scraps which I purchased from Charlotte's Web and Daisy Chain Scrapbooks.
I used three different papers of the same range.  Love them.   The image is from the Nellie Snellen Vintage selection.
I layered the image onto Kraft card stock then Night Of Navy.  The hessian and cheesecloth are from Linda at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  'Treasured Memories' are a Kaszazz stamp set.
I then arranged some different flourishes and flowers at the side of the image to mimic the colours of the seaweed and ocean.  Also to give a bit of a lift to the arrangement, the apricot flowers and glass spray highlighted the little girl's hair.  A cluster of pearls with some little shells and my card is finished.
The photo doesn't pick it up but there is Clear Rock Candy distress stickles on the ocean and dry Clear Rock Candy distress glitter on the sand.

The ladies will be making this card in class tomorrow.  I'm pretty sure they'll like it.
Thanks for visiting today and hope you like my card.

I know they'll love it! I do see a bit of sparkle along the beach. Very pretty! Love all the treasures you added. Before I saw the photo I was reading your colors and description, imagining what I might be about to see... wow! What you can do with naturals, navy, and kraft! Gorgeous card, Leigh!
