Happy Birthday Robot

It's another Bellariffic Friday! I'm really digging these challenges and loving the fact that it is getting me stamping. :)

This week we had another sketch from Nicky. I don't usually make square cards, so this was definitely a challenge! I really wanted to use my new cakey watt stamp. Isn't he the cutest little robot? I was going to color him in shades of gray, but I couldn't resist making him match this fun paper from Pebbles inc.

I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture, but I covered Mr. Watt with crystal effects. I just got these new applicators from Gina K and they make it so much easier to control! I will definitely be using more crystal effects from now on. This was also my first time using the Build-a-brads from Stampin' Up! It was a fun way to pull in another piece of patterned paper and count as the larger circle embellishment from the sketch.
