One Layer Simplicity, Merci

So, as promised, I have returned to share my daughter's card for the One Layer Simplicity challenge.
 
 Saturday morning, when I was in my craft room creating my card, she told me, "I haven't made a card for a blog hop in a long time." Quite often she creates a card and plays along with the DeNami Design blog hop. The current hop is a week away, but this little avid crafter created her card 2 weeks ago. So she was itching to create a card. I explained to her the theme, we discussed the stamps that I have in my stash and she got busy making her card.
 
 
To create her little scene in France, she inked up Cafe Chickies and colored it in with copics. Then, she drew her Eiffel Tower using a colored pencil. I do not really have many foreign language sentiments, so she inked up Merci from CAS-ual Fridays Big Thanks. Then to create her skyline, she inked up Chickie in Balloon and Small Cloud and finished her coloring. In case you do not know, my little girl is only 6 1/2 years old.
 
Even though I do not have an Eiffel Tower stamp, that did not stop her from creating her little café scene in France. She even told me that she could draw France. I love that she doesn't let little things hold her back. She is so creative and I learn so much from her when she crafts.
 
Thanks for stopping by. Your kind words will make her day...week!!

  4. This is a wonderful card. What a beautiful and colorful scene she has created. Those chickies look like they are having such a nice chat, right at the base of the Eiffel Tower. And, I love their friend in the hot air balloon.

  5. Good job! 6! Are you kidding me? I think she's inspired me to draw mine too. But I'll need a few days, not just the morning!

  6. She has her mom's talent - so well done! If she is interested and wants to make more cards there is a challenge blog out there which has extra entries for kids - and there is not much competition there...

  7. Leah - I have always dreamed of going to Paris and having croissants in a cafe, but floating by in a balloon would be even better! I love your imagination and that you used a french sentiment to tie it all together - I see a bright future as a designer for you! So glad you joined us at OLS - if you're itching for another challenge, we'd love to see you at CASology and Muse, too! Ardyth

  12. Great card. I love the bright colours, and the awsome eiffel tower. My daughter used to craft with me when she was younger & she was so much more confident with colour than I was. Sometimes i wi=ould borrow her colour schemes for my own - Cheers, Dianne
