A CAS-ual Happy Birthday

 3 posts in 3 days?! I know you fell out of your chair in disbelief :)

I'm not sure where all this creative energy is coming from. Maybe I just know that in 2-3 weeks crafting will be something I rarely get to do (at least for a little while) so I'm trying to squeeze it all in before peanut arrives lol

This time I'm joining in the celebration over at Cas-ual Fridays. To celebrate their 2nd birthday and 100th challenge they are playing BINGO. I love having so many options :)

I chose to go right down the left hand side: Polka Dots, Square card, and Birthday. What resulted is a little busier than I normally do but I think it's cue anyway!

I started by stamping the Polaroid from hero Arts Wonderful World then masked the outside edge to stamp my ice cream and cotton candy. Those adorable stamps are from Hero Arts Life of the Party Birthday and I haven't used them in forever! I colored the stamped "picture" with copics. 

For the card base I added my polka dot pattern paper (Echo Park, Dots and stripes) and some tickets from the same stamp set. I colored them with copics and fussy cut them out. The purple paper is from Lawn Fawn's Bright side paper pack. I cannot for the life of me remember where that green came from, sorry!

I stamped my sentiment trimmed it into a banner before adhering it to my Polaroid. The Polaroid was then adhered with dimensional adhesive Stardust stickles and glossy accents finished the whole thing off. 

What do you think too busy? I hope not :) While I'm at it I'm throwing this in the ring for Gallery Idol 2013 since the first category is kids/teen birthday. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
