Domo Arigato!! Mr. Roboto :)

I love to jot down ideas or thoughts on note pads or Post-it notes. I leave a trail of them all over the place..lol Well, I had one sitting on my desk forever telling me to make a Robot card with the sentiment" Domo Arigato"  which is Thank you very much in Japanese. I am sure that most of you are familiar with the 80's song by the band Styx.

I finally got around to wanting to create it. I went searching high and low ( or at least scouring digi sites..lol) for the perfect robot for my card. I found one that I thought was perfect, but the site was closed until after the new year fro Christmas break. :( ... Heart broken, I moved on until I found this one from Pink Cat Studio. He is quite a cutie,yes?



I used the following on the card: 

Image- Boy Robot by Pink Cat Studio ( digi) + a sentiment I created in PS Elements
Stampin up Very Vanilla for card base
Stampin up Classic Stampin' Pad - Taken with Teal for graphic paper piece
Stampin up Jumbo wheel- *not sure of the name*  for the bigger background piece
Pixie Stix Glitter Tube - Lemonade
Spellbinders Nestabilities- Wonky squares
Sizzix embossing folder - RETRO CIRCLES BY TIM HOLTZ
Paper - MME breeze, Adornit Carolee's creations- Seasons ( August cut apart),& Adornit Bobby and Betty- run
gear stickers I had in my stash and I do not remember what brand they are. 
Twine- Maya Road - saffron yellow
Copics used were C0, C1, C3, BG10, R20



I hope you enjoyed the card, and you can now enjoy this song to get it out of your head like I had too..lol
