Back in Black - Polaroid

I'm here today with a card I made for a couple challenges.  This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use a black card base.  This is my first time playing along with CASology.  The cue word this week is HAPPY.  Here's my card....


Supplies:
Stamps:  Inkadinkado Humorous Birthday, SU Seeing Spots
Paper:  Basic Black, PTI White, Brushed Silver, Going Grey, American Crafts DP
Ink: Memento Black
Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Owl Builder Punch (smallest circle)


I used the polaroid picture theme for this card.  I cut a rectangle from white cardstock and then layered a black square inside for the picture - (easier than cutting that square out with an xacto knife).  I used DP with cameras for my background.  I made the camera with several different shaped punches and some pretty chevron dp.  I used a retired Stampin Up Stamp for the dotted circles on the lens.  I finished it with a Happy Birthday sentiment from Inkadinkado Humorous Birthday.  I like the way this sentiment looks like it was hand written.

I had a lot of fun making this card.  It was really easy to put together.  I'm especially proud of how I created the camera with just a few punches and my paper trimmer.

That is beyond clever and cute! I missed CASology by five minutes (somehow forgot about Rocky Mt time zone being between the Pacific Coast and Central time, lol) but I found you on CAS-ual Fridays.
