Robot in oval frame 7" x 5" white card - Day 104 of my 366 day challenge

Robot in oval frame 7" x 5" white card - 
Day 104 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So for today's challenge I have made this fun card that could be for a child of all ages!

I have been trying to get to use some of the die cuts I have and so have used this Tattered Lace frame and a topper from the "Birthdays" book of toppers from Hunkydory as the main focal points.

First of all, I hand coloured the front of the card with Tim Holtz Distress inks trying to co-ordinate them with some of the colours in the topper. I used some cut paper and brushed the sides of the card with more inks to give it a more defined frame in the darker of the blues.

I also used the yellow/blues on the frame so that it wasn't so white and stuck the Hunkydory Robot topper in to the centre of it and glued it to the middle of the card. I used a Spellbinders flower die as the backing layer for the sentiment "Have a brilliant day" which I got from Craftwork Cards "A Year of Sentiments" pad which I edged in a black marker.

I still had a couple of the cogs left over from one of my recent cards (from the "Cogs and Gears" die collection from Trimcraft and so placed one in the top left hand corner. Both sentiment and cog were attached using thicker foam pads than the topper.

I then stamped "May your birthday be as special as you are" inside using sentiment from Honeydoo Crafts Birthday sentiments collection using Versafine Black onyx ink pad.
