Old And New at Iris' Spot

After a break for the holidays and regrouping, it is time for a new challenge at Iris' Spot. The theme this time, is Ring In The New, But Don't Ring Out The Old. We want to see you use both new and old supplies on your project.

This is my first project as part of Iris' DT and I am so thrilled to have been invited to join the team for the current term.

For my card, I have chose to use this fun robot image by Lauretta's Digital Stamps. I felt like this robot would make a cute male card. I've used some fun patterned papers in spots and stripes, from my stash. The ribbon is new, from Joanne's Fabrics. I recycled the buttons off of an old shirt I threw away, when cleaning clostes. The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You and is punched using oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin Up. I twisted the ribbon before I attached it, to give it a fun streamer effect. The tan center panel is dry embossed with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
