Robot Card

I don't have a lot of pictures with this card but I think it is very fun.

Isn't it a blast?  I feel like all of the pieces came together just right.  The robot is from the Robotz cart cut at 4 1/2 inches.  The entire card is 5 x 7.   I used red, black, gray and white cardstock from my stash and a red glitter ribbon that I picked up somewhere along the way.  The design paper on her dress and the bottom of her head is from DCWV Amber Autmn stack.  The heart brad came from Michael's after Valentine's Day sale.  The card topper is a piece of aluminum foil over a piece of cardstock and run through my cuttlebug.  The diamond plate folder is an A2 so I had to run it through twice, thus the ribbon.

The sentiment is computer generated.  It says, "I am a LOVE Machine".  I cut the sentiment out with the scalloped heart Nestability then ran it through the cuttlebug again to emboss the edge.

I have no idea when I will ever use this card (I'm thinking this one will need to go up for sale or given away).

I am very pleased with this card.  It came about because of the Paper Playtime Challenge, Technology.  I was thinking about coloring a cool digi from Tiddly Inks but in the end I decided I wanted to play with my E. 

What do you think?

So, the other thing I've been working on is a light box.  I'm not getting the pictures I want and I'm hoping a light box might solve most of the issues.  The picture at the top is with the light box.  This one is taken outside in the middle of the day.

It is always tough to photograph foil but I wanted it to look as good as possible.  What do you think about these two pictures?  Light box or No?
