Hero Art's ~ Card for Kids...???

I started out making this card for the Hero Arts ~ Card for Kids Challenge...Not sure if this would be a good card for a child...but I think it turned out awesome!!'s my card!

This card took me a while...I knew what I wanted to my head...LOL...but it just wasn't coming together like I wanted it!!...So I had to change the design in my head!!...This is a "Tunnel" card...I'm pretty sure I found the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers...

Okay...So I wasn't sure what I was going to put on the front of the card...I didn't like the fold lines showing...I think I wrote the instructions down wrong...The first one I made I totally messed up and had to start inside panel ended up being bigger than the outside...I knew that couldn't be I started over...I ended up using Black Magic Core'dinations cardstock...I ran it through the paisley cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded the top off to reveal the pink color underneath the black!!...I think it turned out very pretty!!

I then used two little strips of scraps from the inside and ran them through the "With Love" border cuttlebug folder...and I used another little piece of scrap to stamp the sentiment on...the sentiment is from the Close to My Heart, Celebrate Life set...I matted that on a piece of Core'dinations also...The little girl is from the Hero Arts set Sweet Wonderful You {CL881}...I paper pieced her using paper from the sei Poppy collection...the panel that the little girl is mounted on is a piece of Core'dinations flipped over so that the pink is showing...I used a Spellbinders scalloped rectangle for the panel...I had a scrap and it just fit into the rectangle was too long and that's how I got the scallop on the bottom!...I tied a piece of twine around the panel to finish off the front!

Here is the inside of the card: 

I used a metallic cover for the inside...and a spellbinders oval to cut the center out...I used another little girl image from the same Hero Arts set...I paper pieced her using paper from the sei Happy Day collection...both of the girls hair is from the Basic Grey Curio Collection...I rounded the corners of the red cover sheet and added ribbon and black gems from my stash...I used twine to attach the little girl to the opening to make her look like she was "standing" in the opening.

What do you think??...would it make a nice card for a child??...I think maybe its the colors that make me wonder...I usually use happier, brighter colors for a child's card.....

Have a Great Day!!
