I broke out some new cute MFT supplies and came up with this card

My husband has a birthday coming up and he loves piglets, so I began by stamping a couple of the cute pigs from MFT Hog Heaven and coloured them with Copic pens before fussy cutting them and highlighting a few spots with a white gel pen. I then used the MFT Blueprints 27 dies to cut the frame from brown card and the scalloped rectangle from some gingham paper.

I stamped the sentiments on the background before adding the frame which I raised with some foam tape, and then arranged the little pigs. To finish off, I scattered some stars and added some white faux stitching.

We always have a wonderful turn out for the Anything Goes challenge, so why not pop over to the ATSM blog to see inspiration from my fellow Teamies, and then join in with us this time. I can't wait to see what you have to show us.

I'd like to play along with 

Stamping Sensations Challenge - one for the boys
