Farm Birthday

AAAAAGH! When will I learn to check my pictures before I mail the card. This is such a cute card, but such a lousy picture. You can't see the panel of "wood" on each door, let alone the texture of the paper. I created this card using nhoetker's card as inspiration for the outside, so check hers out to get a better idea of how it looks.

I used Michelle's punch pig for the inside. Using my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software, I made my pig with a 2" body and 1.75" head so it would fit better in my 6" square card. I used a heart punch for the ears and a swirl punch from a craft kit of my daughter's for the tail. I used the window punch and star punch for his legs.
This card is for my youngest nephew who is turned six yesterday. He had a farm themed birthday party on the weekend. His mom is an AWESOME scrapbooker and cardmaker so there was a little pressure to create something special. I hope he liked it!

Thanks for looking,
