Robot Birthday Card

My grandson Carter turned four today and I'm still a little bit in shock! He is growing up way too fast. His party was this past Saturday and he asked for a robot theme. This is the card I made him.
The robot image is from the Robotz Cricut cartridge and cut from shimmery grey paper. I added some small brads for buttons on his upper body. The gear is a stamp from Oriental Trading Co, heat embossed with opal silver lining by Clear Tops. The number four is a glitter Thickers sticker. It was originally white, but I colored it green with a marker. The background paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I believe it is from the Robotz set. The ribbon on the top is some I've had forever and I put it on there because it is one of Carter's favorites. He has made several cards here with me and has used this ribbon on almost every one.
A week or so ago I joined in with a group of Circle members and pledged to use my stash for the next three months. The challenge is not to buy anything, except essentials, and use what we have. I'm happy to say everything on this card came from my stash!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a great Robot card! I agree--how do they get so big, so fast! There should be a pause button!!

It's a darling card, Maria. And the continuing use of the same ribbon in another one of Carter's card is SO special!

I am sure he adored this card, and I do too!
