Belated Birthday Robotz - Masculine

I love the way this robot is posed and thought he'd be perfect for a masculine birthday card.  And behind him is a set of gears created with one of the new Tim Holtz Alterations dies from Sizzix. 

I cut the robot at 5", glittered his little antenna dish and pop dotted for a more layered effect.  The gears were distressed (my first attempt) using Tim Holtz distress ink in tea dye and Colorbox black ink.

Another simple card that looks great - at least in my opinion.

The inside sentiment says, "I sent your birthday card late on purpose.  I figured why ruin your special day by reminding you of your age?"

On the suggestion of a fellow blogger I think I'll give this contributer's showcase a try and enter this card into Showcase #4.
