Programmed To Party

I feel like it's been forever since I posted just for me. What I mean by that is, I've been posting for the challenge design teams I'm part off but nothing more really.  If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I've had some ups and downs lately and therfore have been a tad absent. So sorry for that! But I've been spending some time in my craft room  again lately and and should be back on a roll, hopefully:)

I have a fun shaker card to share with you today!
I will be playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday: shake it challenge.

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Using the adorable new robot set from Clearly Besotted. Thought this set would be perfect for more masculine cards. I don't have enough sets that aren't too cutesy for masculine cards.
I created my shaker element using patterned paper I had in my stash and a scallop circle die. Once I had my acetate and dimensional foam attached I filled with sequins from PPP, adhered a white piece of cardstock as my backing and adhered my shaker panel onto my card base.
I created my card base using a scallop rectangle die from Avery Elle and stamped some of the smaller stamps I  the set with the same colored ink as my cardstock to create a tone on tone background.
I colored my little robots and balloons with Copic markers and fussy cut out leaving a small white border. 
To finish off my card, I stamped and adhered my sentiment across the card. 

That's it for my card today! I love how fun it turned out.
Thank you so very much for stopping by!
