Birthday Card ~ Add a Little Metal {1st Post}

I would like to thank Monica at Add a Little Dazzle for the
wonderful metal craft sheet I used on my card.
I won some of her pretty metal sheets a while back and
this is my first time using one...
well you guessed it I've been hoarding them. lol.
She has a ton of colors and they emboss beautifully.
Each of the sheets I received also has a silver side which went perfectly
with the little gear sequins and my favorite bot from Verve Stamps.
I found this new {to me} embossing folder and I thought the snowflakes
looked like the gears so I used it to add a little texture to the metal sheet.
The shaker window is cut using the Verve Jotted Heart die.
Since this heart is the perfect size and shape for my shaker cards
I purchased a second one so I could cut off
the placement holes so it wouldn't cut holes in my base.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Robot and sentiment from the Birthday Bots stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Jotted Heart Die from Verve Stamps.
*Metal Mix gear sequins from Verve Stamps. {Sadly they are discontinued. I need more}
*Metal craft sheet from Add a Little Dazzle.
*Powdered Sugar embossing folder from Sizzix.
*Washi tape from Recollections.
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Memento.
*YG67 and C3 markers from Copic.

May your day always be filled with love.
