MFTWSC85-Go Hog Wild

Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! That means it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things! It's MY favorite sketch challenge!!

For my card today, I used the new Pure Innocence Piggy Bank set. I stamped her on X-Press It blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. I paper pieced her shirt, and the piggy bank with  the new MME Six by Six School Daze paper pad. My cardstock colors are Red Hot, Orange Fizz, and Sno Cone. The flower was created with the Layered Rose Die-namics, and I used the Small Open Scalloped Border Die-namics. For my embellishments, I used Sweet Tooth Grosgrain and Michael's brads. My sentiment was stamped on the Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

These circular sentiment stamps have been created and designed by the totally talented Krafty Girl, Nicole Aspinall!! They are made especially to fit in your 1 3/8ths and 1 ¾ inch punches, for quick and easy cutting!!
