Programmed to Party

Hi, Friends.....

I'm back with a happy birthday card especially suitable for a young boy. I used a fun robot party clown image and crisp lines to go with the bright red, white, and blue color scheme. I left the image uncolored to stay with the clean look. Buttons seemed to go just right with this little clown. I rarely use them, so I was glad to find just the right colors in my stash!!!


I used the July Sketch from Power Poppy today:


Supplies used include:
Verve Stamps - Geared Up stamp set (retired)
Versafine ink in Majestic Blue
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set
Clear embossing powder
DCWV patterned paper
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Core'dinations/Darice scraps from stash
Buttons from stash

Hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by today!!!

    1. That's right!! I forgot that you live over on the prairie across the canyon from me. Thanks for your kind words and for the reminder that you are an Idaho girl, too.


  5. Brilliant card, Janis, the buttons make a perfect embellishment. The robot looks great uncoloured, but would be equally good if the recipient wanted to use it as picture for them to colour themselves. xx

  6. What a bright and fun robot card for a young man, Janis! I love the red, white, and blue, and the buttons are the BEST!! Hugs, Darnell
