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!
