Crafting When We Can Challenges 69 - die cut/silhouette/craft robo shapes

For Challenge 69 over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have a new sponsor, Nicole from

The Winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store

Hop over to the Challenge and see the wonderful inspiration from our marvellous DT.

For my card I used one of my favourite craft items, my Craft Robo.  I don't use this equipment enough but I love designing things on the computer to use when I can have it set up again.  It's such a pain to have to keep packing it away.  My OH claimed the space I had for his stuff.  I'm thinking it's time I claimed it back.

I cut out a frame design I designed a while ago.  I had trouble with it because my blade is old and didn't quite go through the card but it was easy enough to just cut the bits that didn't release.  I used card from my stash for the base card and papers from DCWV stack 6 for my designer papers, I embossed the stripey paper and used a ribbon from a chocolate box to cover the join the papers.  I then printed out my image Work Out Cat onto coated card and coloured with my spectrum noir pens and cut an oval with my robo.  I used stickles to add the glittery dots and my cropodile to add the eyelets to the top corner.  The background for the image was made with spectrum noir pens and distressed inks.
