Pig out!

There's a new sketch challenge today over at the From The Heart blog...

I've been meaning to use Hamlet PigWit Pig Out since I bought him last month, and he's been sitting on my desk coloured up, all ready to go on a card. I liked the idea of the sketch's twist being dry embossing, and I have a new folder that has swirls, perfect to give the impression of piped buttercream. Mmmm!
Here's my card...

The swirly embossing folder that I mentioned is from a pack of 4 folders by Cuttlebug (Heritage Companions set)
The striped paper is by Paper Cellar (wedding collection)
I stamped the birthday greeting from SU's Fun & Fast Notes stamp set, and used my SU eyelet border punch to make the pretty edge.

As well as the I (heart} sketches challenge, I'd like to enter Hamlet at:
Cute Card Thursday - what a gem
Totally Papercrafts - female birthday

I have another Hamlet card to show you, watch this space! ;)
