This Little Piggy All Wired Up in the Mud

This little piggy is so adorable, 
standing with his feet in the mud and smiling up at you.

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s This Little Piggy stamp set and All Wired Up background stamp

This was a fun card to make not only because of the images
but also from a construction and design stand point.

I wanted the sentiment layers to catch the eye but also blend in.
The black half-circle frame draws your eye to the word
but doesn't set it apart, it leads the eye down to the pig.

And the shape on the ends of the Classic Label Punch
matches the shape of the chicken wire fence stamp in the background.

The All Wired Up background stamp works with more than just chickens.
Although this farm girl is quick to point out
that a chicken wire fence will NOT contain a pig.

If you're going to fussy cut images like I did with this little piggy
and like I did with the birds from yesterday's post,
then be sure you have a really good pair of scissors

Check out this little piggy's nose and hooves. . . . eye-catching, right?
A little dab of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen gives the shine.

If you're a fan of pigs then be sure to
check out this other card with a flying pig!
