Pile It On! Challenge - Funny Birthday

Yes...I am still alive! I haven't blogged for a few days because I've been snowed under with work...I spent far too much time over the Christmas holidays crafting, so I've been chasing my tail this last week or so trying to get all of the music arranged for this term's concerts, whilst suffering from some kind of cold/virus which seems to present a new symptom every couple of days! Anyway...I'm getting there, and have a card to show you today for the new challenge over at Pile It On! where our theme is:

'Funny Birthday'

Our sponsor this week is SK Digis:
The prize is a $5 gift certificate to spend in their online store!

I've made a really quick and simple card, using a mini clear stamp set by Inkadinkado called 'Unlisted'. The paper is from the 'Archaic' pad by BasicGrey which I had for years...still got a few scraps left though! The button was from a big bag I got in a charity shop, and is threaded with some Dovecraft twine.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
