TMR - Theme ....

...  Morning!  We had so many fabulous projects submitted to our last challenge at The Male Room - it was great to see the thumbnail display.  Here's hoping that the new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#27 which has a theme of BABIES & LITTLE BOYS, will generate just as much enthusiasm.  I made a birthday card - I always need to have a few cards for little boys!

Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Mix Mash, Fun Birthday Sentiments, Bold Birthday Sentiments; Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz - Robot
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Marina Mist, Tangelo Twist, Pumpkin Pie; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Reverse Wonky Rectangles (S4-307) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie; Papermania DP - For Him; SU Punch - Chevron; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear

Going through my stash of design papers I came across a very old set from Papermania which included this piece with the fun robots.  I used my Tim Holtz blueprint robot stamp for the image, cut it out with a die and coloured it with Copics and added sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  I left space at the bottom of the die cut to add the sentiment.  I grounded the image with a chevron and star.  I echoed the chevron patter by punching a border of orange card and matting it on blue.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of blue card.  On the white panel I created a birthday message from several sets and finished off by adding another cute robot.  I'm submitting this card to the current challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#103 where they want to see the colour blue on your card, and mine is mostly blue.

The sun was shining yesterday (when I made this card) so I was able to take a photo of the robot showing all that lovely shimmer.  The snow on the ground was sparkling too - so very pretty!

The stamp and paper were meant to be together, it looks great and I love his little bit of sparkle.
