Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #68

Today (well, actually last night) I mounted my new Lots Of Bots stamp set and got busy with Karens fabulous sketch! I needed to make a 3rd birthday card for a very special little boy, so what better excuse to break out the 'bots! As much as I love this layout, lining up the little rectangles and cutting the mats to fit drove me just a tad insane, and I swear I must have made the task a lot harder than it needed to be! But I like the finished product, although next time I make a similar layout, I think I'll use punches & make them all square!

I have hand stamped the background using markers & the little stamps that come with this set, and aren't the barcodes, nuts & bolts just perfect for little boys!

And another fabulous sketch from Mrs Giron:
