Piggin Cute!!

Morning Folks!
Just looking at the date and I'm very pleased to see January is nearly over!!
We have a fun recipe challenge for you over at CRAFT this week - nice and easy even if you aren't a great cook!!! Here are the details:

The Stamping Boutique

I love pigs so this image, called Patchwork pig, was the obvious choice from our sponsor, The Stamping Boutique.

Mr Piggy has been printed on to pink and cream paper and then layered up to give the card a bit of depth. Also added a few little highlights with promarkers to give him some extra definition. 

Here's my card:

The papers are from my stash (yes I will use some of it up) and I think pink and brown look great together. I've added a bit of saddle stitch ribbon and a few buttons. I've also been brave and doodled on a bit of faux stitching to link the image and ribbon a bit more. By the way, we are lucky to have two additional sponsors over at CRAFT this week, so there are lots of prizes on offer!!
