It's Your Day Enjoy w/TAWS

Good Morning everyone!!
It is my DT day over at The Alley Way Stamps and I have another card using one of the new release stamp sets for this month.
If you have not checked out February's new release you can do so HERE!
They are super adorable!!!
So for my card today I wanted to play along with the sketch for this week over at
Seize The Birthday as well as the color combo challenge for Dynamic Duos
And here is the card I came up with. I hope you like it!
The challenge over at Seize the Birthday was to follow the sketch but to also make a masculine birthday card. I knew right away that this adorable robot from the Lighter Than Air stamp set would make a GREAT boy birthday card. What we tend to forget is that the outside of the card does not have to have the traditional "Happy Birthday" sentiment. I know I always write inside the card "Happy Birthday"....So with that said I thought that the sentiment I chose for the outside fit the card perfectly! What do you think??
It is from this month's release stamp set~ All About You
The Challenge for Dynamic Duos was another beautiful color combo~ Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black. I ended up coloring my robot image with those color combos and my paper from October Afternoon happened to be a very similar match as well. The "dessert" option for this weeks challenge was "clouds" and my card does not have actual clouds on the card itself but the "scene" I created was taken in the clouds...LOL!

Supplies Used:
Paper~White, Black
October Afternoon~Rocket Age
Stamps~ The Alley Way Stamps~ All About You, Lighter Than Air
Ink~ Memento Tuxedo Black
Cuts/Dies~ Rocket~
Silhouette Store
Other~ Sewing Machine
