Pig for Fun

I have been very distracted from making cards this week and so today I found some time to sit in my craft cubby and play.  I went looking through my stash of extra images that I'd printed off and haven't used yet.  I found this fantastic pig from Clear Dollar Stamps and it comes with the sentiment in the set called Loving Critters.  This set can be found at the Clear Dollar Stamps store HERE. There is also a coloured version of the same set.
Anyhow, I wanted to just play a little and this is what I came up with.  I coloured the image with my pencil crayons and cut it out.  It's layered over a die cut by spellbinders and some textured brown cardstock from the Dollar Store.  I added the swatch of burlap and then layered some great ribbons together.  I pulled out three great buttons from my collection that I tied a section of Elmer's braiding cord through.  After I added the sentiment, the one corner still looked a bit empty so I added a burlap tag with a matching bow tied to it.  Oh and I inked the sentiment and around the edge of the diecut with Ink It Up chocolate brown.
I hope to be able to play some more this weekend and have more to share with you.  Thank you for dropping by, I love to see you! Have a great weekend!

Oh I wish I had time to create "just cause". This is adorable and love how you saved the burlap from your dinner!
