Robot Birthday

 Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

Wow! I can't believe it's Thursday again already and my turn to share another make with you. 

This week I am sharing a Birthday card with a little bit more of a masculine feel. I have five nephews so I have had to take a deep breath and learn to like making masculine cards lol.

"Robot With Balloon" and the "Open Happy Birthday" sentiment (links below) were a perfect match for this Birthday card. I'm not sure which one of my nephews will receive it but at least I have one of their cards done! <smile>

The finished card size is a little smaller then I usually make (4"x4") but it will still hold money or a gift card which are always on the wishlist of my nephews. 
My robot friend was coloured with alcohol markers and fussy cut with manicure scissors. Some glossy accents were added to the balloon for a bit of shine. Blue cardstock to match my paper was run through an embossing folder to add some texture. The sentiment was stamped, coloured with matching alcohol markers and fussy cut. Some orange twine and gumdrops finish off my card.
