Happy Birthday Robotz

I made this card for the Jitterbuggin Challenge this week.  Our challenge was to follow the sketch posted, make it a birthday card and add  rickrack somewhere, well it worked out perfect because I needed a birthday card for our grandson who turns 4 this month.
 The card is 5 1/2 inches square, I covered it with robot paper that I had in a pack I bought that had boy papers in it.  I cut the robot using the Robotz cartridge at about 3 1/2 inches and shadowed him with a holographic silver paper.  I added the googlie eyes, then thought the rest of his face looked a little plain so I added a small white button for his nose.  I cut the number 4 from the Birthday bash cartridge at about 1/2 inch.

The "happy birthday" is also from Birthday Bash, but instead of cutting it I used my Cri-Kits pens to draw the image.  Now for the rickrack we had to added, I used the rickrack cut on Plantin Schoolbook and welded two pieces together in Design Studio to get the correct size for the card. 

For the inside I just added a strip of paper that I edge punched and stamped a sentiment, and added a couple corners.
I hope you like my Robot card, I would be real happy if you leave a comment so I know you have been here :).
