Emma's Cards Challenge # 9

I'm still having to apologise on behalf of Blogger for making a mess of the appearance of my blog. They seem either unwilling or unable to fix the problem, so, sorry you're having to look at this format instead of my pretty background and font.

Announcing this month's challenge at Emma's Cards! The theme is "Happy Birthday Bryan", so basically, it's a crafty make for a male birthday. This challenge is sponsored by Pink Tulip Creations. Bryan himself will be donating some Christmas themed embellishments to go with the main prize which you can see at the bottom of this post. Bryan is the lovely Emma's partner, and this challenge runs until the end of the month.
Here is my DT card to give you some inspiration.

I started with my favourite 8"x8" blank and matted and layered it with textured brown and orange card from Papermania. The backing paper with the cogs and wheels is from Kanban's Industriana pad.

The robots are digi images from PaperCraftJunkies. They are called Henry Rustin and Uncle Charlie Rustin. I coloured them with Polychromos, used Spellbinders Labels Eleven to die cut them and then inked the edges with Distress Inks Tea Dye.

The cogs are Donna Salazar's "Sprightly Sprockets" which I cut out of silver mirri card. I created the brown cog border by only die-cutting half way through them and I finished the card with a silver sentiment border peel-off.
The winning entry will receive this fantastic prize. It's an  MDF Advent Calendar kit with a retail value of £23, available exclusively from Pink Tulip Creations.

And this is how it can look when you make it up, a real Christmas keepsake.

Lastly, I'd like to wish a Happy Birthday to Bryan!
