Rachel's Contest Entry!

Rachel (my 9 year old daughter) is so excited to enter her first card contest given at Karen's Doodles...she had to use one of their delightful digital images, and her card had to have atleast 2 pattern papers, 3 brads or buttons and something black. She used my Stampin' Up! markers to color in the image and blew me away with her coloring! I quickly told her how to blend her colors, and she went right to it! I'm soooo excited for her about her card, that I just had to post it to show you all!
Hope you enjoy!

Made by Rachel, my 9 year old daughter!
She did the coloring all herself using my Stampin' Up! markers! and she put it all together on her own!
I'm a VERY proud Mom, can't you tell?! :-)

Here's a close-up of her coloring job:


Thanks for stopping by to see!
Please post your comments so my daughter can gain some confidence in her work! Thanks!
