Cute Card Thursday, ABC M for Metallic & Papertake Weekly Challenge

Good evening all. Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I decided to make this card today for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which has the theme 'Happy Mail' make a card to cheer someone up. Having had a good look through the Postpals website and having first hand experience of what these parents and children go through I will certainly be sending more than just this card.
My youngest son Jake has had his fair share of illness from the age of 13 months old following the MMR vaccine he has suffered with uncontrollable epilepsy and severe breathing difficulties, but his time spent in Great Ormond Street and our local hospital was always made easier by the little messages and thoughts from those around us. Thankfully for us Jake is now 14 and over the last 2 years seems to be growing out of these problems, we just hope it stays that way.
Anyway after my waffle its back to the card, I have used the Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch and as I have embossed my robot in Metallic silver I'm sure that fits into the ABC Challenge 'M for metallic' challenge as well.

Here is my card

For the card I have used:-

6" square card blank - Craft Superstore

Backing paper - Papermania For him

Mat & layers - Coredinations So mod

Stamp - Papermania

Senitment - Papermania Clare Curd's signature range

Colours - Promarkers

Embossing - Heat it up (I think)
