Birthday Card ~ Gear Up

I have a thing for cute little robots and this one is a sweetie.
First I colored him up then die cut him out.
I wanted my balloons to match him so I 
colored some white scraps then die cut them out, too.
The bot and balloons are popped up with foam tape.
Next I die cut the edges of my sentiment strip.
The background is embossed using a gear design.
The set also has a little girl bot.
I have plans to make a little girl card very soon.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Robot, balloons and sentiment from the Best Bots Forever stamp set from My Creative Time.
*Bot and balloons cut using the Best Bots Forever set from My Creative Time.
*Edge cut using the Fun Stitched Edges dies from My Creative Time.
*Oval cut using the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies from My Creative Time.
*Embossed using the Steampunk Gears folder from Darice.
*B23 and B32 markers from Copic.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love.
