Z - Zoo Animal

Z - Zoo Animal

We have good news to share today at ABC Christmas Challenge! The DT Call is over and 3 new members are joining our team. 

Please give a big welcome to them!

Okay on to our challenge-it's the end of the year and we're at the last letter of the alphabet. For my inspiration today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend who had her first child in late October. It's always exciting to celebrate a baby's first Christmas.

One of my favorite zoo animals is the elephant. When I ran across a chipboard elephant by Brenda Walton in my stash I knew he had to make an appearance on my card. I used a computer generated sentiment and die cut it with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag. Liquid pearls outline the smaller SB's Labels 10 die and the outer edge of my green cardstock. Punched vellum snowflakes add a frosty feel and a large pearl was added to each one. 

I popped the elephant and larger label up with Scrapbook Adhesive foam squares for dimension. A striped ribbon runs through the middle underneath. Simple but sweet!

You can see all of the Zoo Animals inspiration by the design team on the challenge blog. I'd like to wish all of my ABC Christmas Challenge teamies a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! To all of our participants thank you for joining us this year and making ABC Christmas Challenge a fun place to share Christmas projects, all year long. 

This challenge is sponsored by

Edited: This is a scheduled post but I'd like to ask each of you to pray for my mother and sister. Each is battling a serious health issue this Christmas and your prayers would mean the world to them. 
Thank You!

Merry Christmas everyone, wherever you are.

What a sweet chipboard and I really like how you designed this card. Perfectly balanced and childishly sweet.
Wishing you a lovely Christmas. Tomorrow is the big day, in Norway Santa arrives after Christmas dinner so all presents will be opened tomorrow, you'll probably have to wait one more night if I'm not mistaken... And sending thoughts your way for your mother and sister.

It looks so cute! This elephant is so pretty. I envy people that can make such pretty post cards cause how many times I tried I couldn't make such a beauty.
