The Kraft Journal 92 - Ink it Up!

Hello my darling little friends!

For today's challenge over at The Kraft Journal I created a fun and cute Christmas card for the Ink it Up challenge.
Starting off with Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock as my base, I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock embossing a row of buttons at the top and bottom next adding a piece of red and pink polka-dotted patterned paper by Pink Paislee to the center. 
Framing Mr. Snowdude was in order with layers of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock, white cardstock, and fun snowflake paper.  I took a length of red striped ribbon and pleated it at the bottom which has been anchored with a sugar coated snowflake. A sentiment banner was created from Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes. For one last important finishing touch, red bling was added to give Mr. Snowdude some sparkle! 

I hope you will play along with our Ink it Up challenge this week at The Kraft Journal.  All those that participate in our challenges for the month will have a chance to win a $15.00 gift certificate from The Kraft Outlet....and you also get a chance to be considered for The Feature Me Friday artist post on The Kraft Journal blog! How Cool is that?

I am personally adding this to My Craft Spot - Emboss It

Hope your week is full of blessings!
~Tammy~
