Here is a card I made for my brother's birthday. It's a little childish, but I think he'll like it. He's turning 35 today. I haven't sent it yet because I was so busy getting ready for my husband's birthday which was yesterday. I was inspired by these challenges:

Runway Inspired
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Pile it On - birthdays

This card is fun because I used a little Adhesive Spring to pop-up the robot. I love how it wiggles :)
Here is a front view of the card:
This is the Runway Inspired challenge photo. I was inspired by her striped shirt , the yellow in her shoes and skirt, and the little cyclops she has on her t-shirt, hence the robot.

I'm also entering this into Heart2Heart's "spring forward" challenge.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Black, Sunny Yellow
Other paper: b&w pack I got from M's (not CTMH), vellum from HL (not CTMH)
Stamps: Outta This World, Hodge Podge Alphabet
Ink: Black Pigment Ink
Other: Black Hemp, Honey Mini Medley, Honey Marker, Artist Cricut Cartridge
