Happy Birthday Ashley

If you came here looking for my Shaping Up Blog Hop & Giveaway post click HERE.

Okay, it's not her birthday yet but I due to a few upcoming stampy commitments, I had to get this done in advance!  I decided that I could go ahead and post this a few days early! I've already sent it on it's merry way in the mail to her, I am hoping she should have it by now!  Isn't getting non-bill mail is so much fun!!!  

Happy Birthday Ashley!  
I know this is early, but I hope you have a wonderful birthday month!  
(Yes, in my house we celebrate birthdays the entire month!)
 For this card I felt it extremely appropriate to use some of my favorite Paper Smooches stamps!  We both have a thing for Paper Smooches.  
Okay, maybe it's more than just a thing- we're both obsessed with Paper Smooches!  

Instead of coloring in the pig, I just paper pieced him with Avery Elle cardstock!  He's also just a hint sparkley too!  Pigs sparkle, right?  A few die cuts and some bakers twine later, we have a card! 

Cardstock: Avery Elle: White, Pixie.  PTI: Soft Stone.
Pattern Paper: Dear Lizzy Neapolitan.
Stamps: Paper Smooches Party Posse, Green Acres.
Dies: PTI Notebook, In the Meadow die.  MFT Die-namics Stax Flag.  Lil' Inker Cloud dies.
