Polka Retro Birthdays

Just popping quickly with another card that will be going into a box of notelets.

Today I used Cas-ual Fridays polka dot challenge. I have added a retro twist to my polka dot using one of my new Craft Meow's retro foundations stamp. I coloured in the dots with promakers using the colours from the Colour Trend Embellishment challenge-a new challenge for me, although I have been looking at this challenge for a few weeks, this is the first time I have had a go. Ooops when looking back on the challenge I have now realised that I have used last weeks this won't be going into this challenge-I will have to try again!

I added a few extra dots and gems to follow my twist on the 'polka dot' theme and ended by adding texture using PTI linen impression plate.

A CAS card that is great for a notelet pack and even better as I got to play with a few more of my new stamps!
I am also going to enter this into the 'Happy Birthday' challenge at Lexis Creations
