My card today is for my Grandson's 8th birthday on Tuesday.  He adores anything that is a transformer or anything to do with Harry Potter.  Conor and his Mom are reading the books – surrently almost done with bbok 3.

After stamping the image from Boys Will Be Boys in Staz On Black Ink, I used a Blender Pen with Basic Gray Ink to color it.  A Labels Collection Framelit was the perfect size to use to cut the image and a Real Red mat.  My card base has texture courtesy of the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Now for the arrows – The new What's Up Punch made quick work of the Real Red Arrow.  And, the Coastal Cabana Arrow was stamped with an image from Boys Will be Boys and then fussy cut,  Both arrows are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The Happy Birthday Banner is also an image from Boys will Be Boys and it is stamped with Basic Gray Ink.  The flag ends were created with my scissors and this too is popped up with Dimensionals.

The eyes of the robot are Daffodil Delight Candy Dots from the Brights Pack.  I jsut didn't think that Rhinestones would be appreciated as much as the candy dots!  And, the candy dots add to the "mechanical" nature of the robot.

Birthday Inside

I repeated the sentiment on the inside of the card and added a few legoes for interest.  The dsp used on my card is from the Maritime pack.  The striped pattern is just perfect for any nasculine card.  It was carried over to the flap of the envelope too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
