Paper pieced piggy

My sister in law saw the piggy card I posted a few days ago and told me that my niece was majorly into piggies. So...I had to make a card just for her. A pink girly card. So this is what I came up with.

I stamped the pig image on pink decorative paper and again on brown paper. I cut out the brown spots and added them to the pink stamped pig. Then I cut out the pink pig and I sent him through the cuttlebug using the 'swiss dot' embossing folder. I also used my nestabilities to cut and emboss the rectangles on this card. I'm really happy with how it came out.

So...what do you think? Maybe a little overboard for a little girl of my nieces age (preschool age)? I seem to find it impossible to do a simple card!

I think the piggie is adorable!! I am sure your niece will love it! The paper piecing was perfect, and the dots made it even better. I think your niece is just the right age to enjoy the tactile stimulation of this card for SURE! :D kelly

Cute chocopig. Not overboard in design....just a time consuming card. Well done, Jane.
