This Little Piggy


I have missed playing along with some challenge blogs and I have been determined to get a card made this weekend.

At Jitterbuggin' Sheri asked us to celebrate National Pig Day (March 1) by making a card with a pig on it. I was unaware of the holiday, but it sounded like a good reason to make a card! Also we are to use 2 different patterned papers, add some buttons, and we can use any sketch. I just received Cricut Country Life cartridge and was happy to see a pig image on it! Hope it is Ok to have two pigs!! This image is on page 40 and was cut at 2 1/2 inches using the regular, layer 1, and layer 2 features. Lots of inking and for a little embellishment bling, I added two gemstones on the bows. The sentiment is also on the same page and was cut at 1 3/4 inches using the phrase and shadow features. I handcut the small banner piece and pop-dotted the sentiment on it. Two tiny matching buttons are from my stash of goodies.
For the papers, I was able to incorporate 4 patterned papers. I used 5 solid papers on the card which include the pink for the pig noses and darker pink for the mouth. This does not show too well in photo. The double-sided papers are from a Martha Stewart Playful Pink paper pad. Brown and black are Colorbok.
Martha Stewart edge punch was used on the lavendar gingham paper.

I love it when I can enter a card in more than one challenge. I was so excited that Cooking with Cricut Challenge 19 is Double Take! We are to use 2 pieces of patterned papers (perferably different patterns), 2 pieces of solid papers (perferably 2 different colors), 2 embellishements and a Cricut or other die cut machine cut. I believe I have all that covered...and I have 2 Pigs!! Will that count extra!
You still have time to join in the fun for both these great challenges! So head over to the blogs and enter your project!

Thanks for visiting! Your comments are always appreciated!
