Hello, friends. It's Saturday, it's snowing again, and my 9 year old is entering her first challenge. She is so excited. She knows I enter lots of challenges and am on lots of design teams and she's been begging me to let her enter a challenge. She asked me the other day why they didn't have kids on design teams. She wants to be on one. I told her she would have to wait a few years then she could enter.
I found a challenge blog that accepts children's entries, so she made this beautiful card to enter.
Yes, my 9 year old colored this beautiful image from Delicious Doodles called Marina. She used my colored pencils and even blended the colors with OMS. She added lots of embossing, even used my Marvy heat tool. She also used chalks to make the ocean background. I helped her come up with the sketch and showed her the different papers that would work with this card, then she used my trimmer to cut the papers and used the ATG Gun to adhere all the pieces. I did help her tie the knot because she just couldn't get the hang of it. That's all the help I gave her. She did it all by herself. I think I'm a little jealous. Her's looks as good as what I create.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and please leave Kierstynne some love in the comments below. She's not so sure it's good enough for a challenge, but I think she did a fantastic job. Have a wonderful day and God bless y'all.
