A Collaboration of Art...

This is a card made for Tommy, my father-in-law. I thought I'd try a new approach for cards (since we celebrate 4-5 at a time!) and let my boys color the image and then create a card around it.

Cole (who is 5 on Monday!) colored Petey from Inky Antics for Tommy's birthday card. I matted him on Basic Black cardstock, and then adhered him onto my Gable Green Base (5.25x5.25). I stamped the sentiment from All Holidays and tied my May Arts ribbon to pull it all together. If you're ever looking for an interesting challenge, let your kids color an image and then try to base a card around it!

Thanks for looking!
