Retro Sketches #19

Hi Everyone! If you celebrated the 4th of July, I hope you had a great time. I have a challenge card to share today. My daughter, who is 8, and I did this one together. Meaning, she hid her card from me until she was finished and refused any help at all. Ha ha! We crafted side by side but I wasn't allowed to see what she was working on.

Here is the sketch:


Here is my card (I have been dying to make a card like this since I received this Jillibean Soup paper!!):


I cut out the limes by hand from patterned paper and used the die cut punch out for the sentiment.


And here is my daughter's card!!


It was so cute to see her digging through my cardstock and stamps and twine, looking for just the perfect things to use. I definitely see us taking on more challenges together!

Thanks for stopping by today!
