Hana's card :)

Evening all

Just a quick post to share the card my lovely 11-year-old niece Hana made to give her mum for her birthday. Aside from printing out the papers and image, and cutting them out, she did it all by herself :) 
She picked out this adorable little mermaid to colour in :) It's from Lili of the Valley.

The papers are from Pixel Paper Prints
Charm and dewdrops from Ribbon Girl
Ribbons from stash
Sentiment printed on the computer
She coloured with my Copics
Lashings of Stickles and Glossy Accents :) 

She'd love to get some nice comments on her card I'm sure, so feel free to let her know if you like her card :) 

She'd like to enter it into the Simon Says Stamp Kids Challenge.

Thanks for having a look!
