Oh (robot) Boy!

Hello friends! Saturday means it's time for another fun challenge at Crazy for Challenges!

This week the challenge is to use black, white and one other colour! I've been loving green lately, minty greens in particular so that inspired my combo using the new Times and Seasons 2 papers by Echo Park. 

Here's my card...

I was inspired by the Pink Elephant challenge this week to use distressing/paper tearing. I love distressing, and kicked it up a notched for this challenge by ripping away sections of the paper and doing a little peek-a-boo of another pattern underneath. The layout is Mojo 317.

If you haven't seen the new releases at Verve, you are missing out! Here's a link to the last couple of releases. I've used Birthday Bots today.

I coloured with copics, and paper pieced on this little cutie.  I've also used the Metal Mix sequins, and that fancy border under my focal layers is the always elegant Flourished Trim die

On this inside of my card I used the leftover cardstock cut with the Flourished Trim die as a layer - love the negative of this die! I shadow stamped the little robot and added another gorgeous sentiment. 

Now it's time to go see all the fab inspiration from the design team, happy hopping!
