Parachute Pig Birthday

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card using the September image from Gerda Steiner Designs monthly progressive challenge. I received this cute Parachute Pig for free since I participated in last month's challenge.

The image was coloured with Touch Five markers and then fussy-cut so I could pop it up with foam tape. I computer-generated the punny sentiment.

My card design was inspired by Sketch 153 over at Feeling Sketchy (shown below).  This is the first time I've played there.

Here are the other products used:

  • Clear stamp: Smiley face on sun (Your Next Stamp Rainbows and Happiness)
  • Patterned paper: K and Company
  • Dies:  Lawn Fawn Spring Showers
  • Twine: American Crafts 

I would also like to support the following challenges:
Crafting by Designs A Stitch in Time (faux stitching on sun and cloud ) 2/3
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper September UE
Inspiration Destination AG UE
Jo's Scrap Shack AG 2/3
Just Keep On Creating AG UE
Repeat Impressions DCC914 ~ Happy Birthday UE
Southern Ridge Trading Company Favourites (my favourite type of card to make is scene cards and my favourite scene elements are these sun and cloud dies from Lawn Fawn - I use them in practically all of my scenes)
Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5 wk1
