Happy Birthday Robot Card 2

I made the following card for the Lawnscaping Texture Challenge.

This little robot from the Beep Boop Birthday Stamp set was begging me to use him on a card and I had some great Basic Grey Mon Ami papers I wanted to play with.

My texture was made using one of the We R Memory Keepers Sequence embossing folders.  I've been using my embossing folders with letterpress paper lately.  It gives such a wonderful impression without the paper breaking. 

Did you know that paper breaking is honestly one of my biggest pet peeves when embossing paper?  (Seriously it bugs me a bit too much :)) So letterpress paper is my new best friend lately, I've also found that watercolor paper works well too if you mist it before you emboss it.

Have a great day!
