Karen Burniston March Designer Challenge Day 2

Hi everyone,

As promised yesterday, I am  back with another card for this month's Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time round the theme for our challenge is Make 'em Laugh! - Funny cards for any theme. Here's a chance for you to use all those funny stamps you have, or make up your own greetings - you decide! 

As I am celebrating my birthday today and it is one of those BIG ones .... I figured it was only appropriate to create a birthday card for my challenge card today. I have been wanting a reason to play with some new stamps from Art Impressions which some friends gave me for Christmas.

The base of my card was created using the Rectangle Pull Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs

I just love that woman holding the fire extinguisher and that sentiment above ... it's probably not a good idea to put the number of candles that match my age on a cake this year haha ... maybe one candle per decade will be plenty!  The speech bubble used for the sentiment is from the Rectangle Accordion Card set

When you pull open the card it reveals another woman who is holding balloons which are attached to a spiral ... and the sentiment of the inside panel says "Happy 29th Bday! .... Again.  If only!!!!!!!!!!!

The balloons are included in the Spiral Circle Pull Card. The orange dots on the top closure piece and the left hand panel are from the Fancy Seasons Frame Edges set

If you are looking to purchase Karen's Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Craft Giraffe (formerly Photo Continental). 

Don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on Wednesday when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month, plus an amazing card/video tutorial from Karen Burniston.
