Birthday Robot

Yesterday was my eldest son's 9th Birthday!  I wonder where the time went!  Here he is growing into a young man and now in grade 4!  He's also getting to that stage where he's too old for 'cutesy' stuff and heaven forbid I should give him a peck on the cheek in PUBLIC!!  :)  So I looked at my stamps and thought what should I give this boy for his card, when I found this robot.....perfect!!  (Even better, when he saw it he said....'that's cool Mum'!)

I used a grey base, green and some Basic Grey Marjolaine DP.  The next panel is more Marjolaine matted with more green and across the bottom, I stamped the sentiment from MFT's Little Loveosaurus in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Across that panel I added two pieces of grey grosgrain ribbon.  The robot is from MFT's Love Machine set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (C0, C1, C3, C5 - the C0 now comes in the CIAO range!!).  It was cut with the Mega Rectangle Nestabilities and matted with the matching scallop in green.  To finish I added a little hardware in the form of silver brads.

Stamps - Love Machine, Little Loveosaurus (MFT)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Grey and Green Bazzill, Basic Grey Marjolaine DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Mega Rectangle and Scalloped Mega Rectangle Nestabilities, Grand Calibur, Grey Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads, Foam Tape.

If you entered to win a pack of 10 Sheets of X-press It Blending Card, please see my post below!!  That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!  :)
