Vintage Beach Card with A Child's Year

This card started with a pack of vintage beach cards I bought at local LSS.  I love vintage pictures and  have lived  on the Pacific Coast my entire life.   I love the little girls on the beach. I knew right away this would go great with this cut from ACY.  I used Tim Holtz paper for the background, Tea Dye Tim Holtz ink, several embellishments (one says " Adventure" and one says "Our Escape") I had in my stash, some crocheted lace, real mini shells and I embossed the starfish from  ACY.  I cut two of these, used cuttlebug embossing folder to add dimension and pop dotted it.  Left the inside blank so I can decide later what sentiment I need.
