Happy Birthday Trevor!

Tomorrow my little man is going to be 6 years old!  I am sharing the birthday card I made for him today so I can get it entered in a few challenges.
I LOVE how this one turned out!  I used one of the robots from the Tinheart collection at PaperWorks Co.  The image was colored in with copics and then I added crystal effects to his eyes and to the "screen" on his body.  I wanted to do something different so I went digging through a drawer in the garage and came up with some washers, lock washers and bolts and decided to use those.  Gonna have to do some more digging because I really like how these look ~ good thing I don't have to mail this because it is heavy!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - X-tra Dimension
Cuttlebug Be Inspired - Easel Card
Charisma Cardz - "Metal Mickey" - use some type of metal
Paper Play - Card for a Child or Teenager

Paper Sundaes - Birthday Card
Stamp With Fun - Birthday
Stamptacular - Stars and Stripes - star pattern paper, striped paper and ribbon
Creative Card Crew- Easel Card
Taylored Expressions - Sketch

Have a great day!  :)
