Piggy Thanks Easel Card

This is a thank you card I made for a friend who loves pigs.  I just love how a button makes the perfect snout for this piggy!  The Button Buddies set is such fun to use.  I started with a white square card blank and added a scored line at the halfway point of one side of the card to form the easel card base. I covered the bottom panel with Bashful Blue dotty paper, added a punched Pretty in Pink border and popped up a Thanks Decorative Label.  I stamped piggy in Pretty in Pink ink, applied some Regal Rose ink with a sponge dauber, cut him out and added the button snout and rhinestone eyes.  I cut a rectangle of Bashful Blue CS, added a strip of torn Certainly Celery CS as grass and popped piggy up, tucking his back feet behind the grass.  I die cut 3 clouds using the Memory Box Puffy Clouds die, sponged them with Bashful Blue ink, glued 2 flat and popped 1 up.  To finish off the front I added some Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon.

I stamped a frame and sentiment on the bottom of the card and added a Pretty in Pink punched border.  I covered the envelope flap with some pink dotty paper to finish off.
