Guest Designer at ABC Christmas Challenge - Let's get Krafty for Kids!

Over at ABC Christmas Challenge they have a new challenge and are being sponsored by Digital Delights. They kindly asked me to make a card for them to which I gladly accepted :)
The challenge is "K is for Kids and Kraft" and it was a challenge for me as I'm not a huge Kraft fan, even though it is very popular right now.

Challenges:
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
I Did It - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Let's Get Krafty
Digi Doodle Shop - Embossing
Christmas Card Challenges - Christmas with the option of
Christmas Inspirations - Christmas Card for a Child
Basic Grey Challenges - Mix It Up (I used BG papers and BG embossing folder)
Phindys Place - Christmas in May
Winter Wonderland - P is for...Punches (anything beginning with P)
Christmas Stampin - Very Vintage (although the image is not Vintage the style of papers, Kraft paper and inking are)
2 Sisters - Use a Digi
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Scallops
Digital Tuesday - Texture
Ladybug Crafts - Animals
My Time To Craft - Use a Die Cut


Card Recipe:
Image - Tango The Skating Bird
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Basic Grey Fruitcake (discontinued)
Gloss - Liquid Embossing by All Night Media
Embossing Folder - Basic Grey Diamonds by Sizzix
Die Cut - Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Seventeen Die Templatesand Spellbinders Nestabilities Eyelet Squares Die Templates
Border Punch - Snowflake Border by Martha Stewart



I thought this little guy was so sweet and to make him just a little sweeter I added Liquid Embossing to his skates for some extra shine!
It was nice to make a Christmas card for a change and I highly recommend you visiting and adding ABC Christmas Challenge to your blog roll!
