A Fun Birthday Challenge Card ...

Well I managed to sneak in a little crafting time, 
there were two challenges that I wanted to combine together...

The first is from Papercraft Challenge.

Their April challenge is 
Anything Goes (Optional: Birthday )
Please visit them here to play along:
you have all month to get this one done!!

The second component of the my card challenge is from 

little red wagon

their challenge  #440 is Old McDonald - 
this is to showcase a farm animal on your card.
You can play along with them here:

For my Card I decided on the MFT stamp set 
Hog Heaven 
Image result for mft hog heaven

Here is the card I came up with by merging the two challenges:

I think it turned out adorable!!

Here are a few of the basics sullies I used to create the card.

The background of the frame is inked with Distress Salty Ocean
and a template that I created.

The piggies are just the sweetest.
I don't have the dies yet - 
I really think I should just fussy cut until I get a Scan & Cut.
or that is my dream anyway!
I love the little add on pieces, 
I added a bow tie to make this piggy a boy.

 Here I made two more little cupcakes to place on the crate, 
and put a bow on this piggies head to make her a girl.
I used my glossy white pen to add some polka dots.

Thanks as always for stopping by to see what I am up to.

Please feel free to leave a comment.
I love to see who's been here to share my creations.
