This little piggy...

I have made something a little different for me. This is an easel card using a super cute piggy image by Crissy Armstrong called I Smell Spring. Rather than use the image as it is I decided to cut the piggy out and mount him on an easel card using some paper and dies to create a sort of farmyard scene. I have used oodles of Whimsy Stamps products on this card (5 items I think!). What do you think...? Told you it was different for me ;-)

 A close up of the main part of the card...
 A sideways view...
 A close up of the piggy, can you see I've added muddy splodges on his face...
 A close up of my new button stamp and die, love these...
 I love, love, love this sentiment (reason why I added mud marks to the pig's face!)...

Phew, sorry for all the photos but I don't normally make such detailed cards, lol ;-)

Image - I Smell Spring coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Real friends sentiment - from the Funny Friend Sayings set
Button sentiment - from the Everyday Button Sentiments set
Pearls, raffia & lace - stash
Paper - Doodle Deux by Prima
Other - Whimsy Stamps button die, Whimsy Stamps picket fence die, Memory Box fancy blossom die, Memory Box cloud die, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Deckle edge rectangle die, brown chalk ink pad, Icicle Stickles
