Robot Birthday


Wow, two posts in one day! 🙂 I had to make a birthday card tonight for a family friend who has his birthday tomorrow. I saw the Just Add Ink challenge up for this week – a sketch, here:

And the Stamping 411 colour challenge, here:

I wondered about both the colours and the sketch for a masculine card, but added that as an extra personal challenge… and came up with this:

The square lattice embossing folder is an absolute must for me when it comes to ‘boy cards’, and everything I make right now has an Itty Bitty Button on it! I tailored the card to fit the new open-ended envelopes from Stampin’ Up! – they’re not that big, so neither is my card. But I know that when it’s opened tomorrow, it will be received with a very grateful heart. And that’s all that matters.

(Oh yes – I made chocolate cupcakes tonight for tomorrow’s Extravaganza, and have put one aside for a personal birthday cake for him, too. Our little boys will love putting a candle on it and singing him happy birthday! 🙂 )

Have a great weekend!

    Love it – great job interpreting the sketch and edited beautifully. The itty bitty button is the perfect finishing touch.
