My 8-year old son Charlie loves to make cards.  I love him and love sharing this activity with him.  He started by just putting paper, stamps and stickers together on a card.  But when he saw me using a card sketch from "Make it from Your Heart", one of CTMH's how-to books, he wanted to try.  He's gotten really good with his paper trimmer!

Following someone else's sketch didn't last long.  His creativity kicked into overdrive and he started creating his own sketches!!  And boy, did it make him proud to see Mom using HIS sketch to make cards.  So today, I chose to use one of his sketches in my 25 Day challenge.

I like nice, clean cards.  And with this stamp, "Illuminate", I especially wanted the image to stand out.  The dark background, the subtle stamped texture, the sponging and glitter all work together to make this stamp set ... and Charlie's sketch ... shine.

Here's Charlie's Sketch, if you want to give it a try:

My creative genius, hard at work!
