Hog My Heart

It's Freshly Made Sketch Challenge time and today our hostess is my Aussie friend, the fabulous Narelle Farrugia, and here is her sketch:

Oh, I love this sketch and as soon as I saw it, I wanted to use my new Hog Heaven stamp set.  I'm a sucker for Birdie Brown's stamp range and even though I tell myself I don't need her new sets, invariably I end up getting them.  I have the willpower of a gnat, I tell you!

My card is pretty self-explanatory.  I stamped, colored with Copics and die-cut the images and arranged them to meet the sketch.  For the sentiment banner, I white embossed the sentiment and cut it into a long, thin strip.  The heart was colored with Wink of Stella then covered in Glossy Accents for some added interest.

Thanks for visiting!  I highly recommend you check out the rest of the design team's cards, as they are amazing as usual.  And as an added bonus, we have two new Guest Designers joining us for the summer - Cecile Ribon and Shannon Jaramillo.  Welcome, ladies!

I'm linking this card up to Camp Create at MFT for their Delightful Die-cutting challenge.

Awesome, Karren! This card is so much fun. I love these little piggies. And I so know what you mean with the magic of Birdie Brown stamps. They do the same to me - again and again. You hit the nail on the head. We're gnats - let's not fool ourselves.
