Happy Birthday Fun

This was a super fun card to make and was inspired by a Bingo challenge at Scrapbook Blessings Club 

I wanted to use all the squares on the BINGO board and really didn't think it was possible....but the challenge was on :)
I free hand doodled the cupcake
Colored the cupcake with watercolors
Added bling to top off the cupcake
Used buttons for balloons
I used gold cord (and with the green balloon that takes care of the green & gold)
The base of the card is covered with washi tape
The washi tape has the shamrocks on it
You can see the obvious Birthday theme
And it is all on an easel card
Whew!!!  I did it!!!
In addition to the Bingo items, I used the Celebrate stamp which is from Fiskars Make A Wish Quotes stamp set.   The cupcake was colored with Inktense pencils.  And to hold the easel open I cut out a label with my Cuttlebug Plus Fanciful Labels cut & emboss folder, and stamped with Thinking Of You On Your Birthday which is from an MFP stamp set, and attached it with foam tape.

Now I'm challenging you....
