FMS62 Christmas Toys Card

Last night, I had this idea spinning around in my head about creating a Christmas card with a non-traditional stamp set. At first, I thought about my children's favorite Christmas story "Aliens Save Christmas" (from the Aliens Love Underpants series). However, I didn't have a Santa stamp small enough to coordinate with the cute space ship stamp from Outta This World. As I sat in my study pondering what to use, the idea for a robot toy took root. By the way, my son loves this card, and says "Mom, you're the best cardmaker ever. I love all of your cards." Well, I certainly don't think I'm the best, but am proud to be so in his eyes. :)

Paper: Pear & Partridge, White Daisy CS (CTMH), Kraft CS (MFT)
Stamps: Outta This World, Card Chatter-Christmas (CTMH)
Inks: Black Pigment Ink (Tsuniko), Versamark (CTMH)
Tools: Craft Heater, Cricut Artiste Cartridge, Olive Marker, Cranberry Marker (CTMH)
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Foam Tape (CTMH)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
1. Friday Mashup FM86 Challenge
2. H2H Christmas Week #3 Challenge
3. Freshly Made Sketches FMS62 Challenge

I just love that silver embossing on the robot, and this is the first time that stamp set has been inked up. Thanks, Friday Mashup, for inspiring me to use it. Have a happy, crafty day!
