Two Cards

Over at 2 Sketches 4 You, Kazan has posted her 22nd sketch along with a Youth Art Challenge. This was a wonderful challenge that I could not pass up. In honor of Youth Art Month, my daughter, Paige, and I are submitting our cards for the 2nd category, since Paige is 5.

Before I share her card, I must tell you how excited Paige was to be included. I often share my scraps with her, but never do I turn her loose in my scraproom. Her eyes lit up when I told her that this was a special occasion, and she could use anything she wanted! Hers is not an interpretation of this week's sketch - it's simply what happens when a 5 year-old is free to create with a room full of paper, glue, and embellishments. And here it is:

My card is an interpretation of Kazan's sketch, and also my take on today's 365 challenge - Inside Out. I was super excited to try out the new Wild Card cartridge that I bought yesterday for my Cricut Expression. I can tell I'm going to get a lot of use out of it.
Thanks for stopping by!
