Love from Pig

Hello - Thought I would do a quick post for this card that I made recently for the Boyf's birthday.
His pet name for me is Pig (in an affection way like Babe the pig in the film - not in the fat greedy way??! Although I do like to trough down on cake and chocolate!)

This image was perfect for his card and is called Birthday Pig with Balloon from Gerda Steiner Designs. This image was free and there are several others that are on offer also but they are all such lovely crisp images - I know I am going to become a regular customer!

The striped background paper is from My Minds Eye - Black & Grey necessities and the blue spot is washi tape from Queen & co. I hand cut a tag from Kraft card and tied some black ribbon through the punched hole. After I had coloured the image I added some glaze to the balloon and sprinkled some cosmic shimmer glitter into it. I then used 3D foam to attach the image to the tag and used Peels off & Doodlebug letters to create the sentiment. I also added an enamel Heart from Hobbycraft and a few co-ordinating enamel dots.

I coloured Pig in with Baby pink, Cocktail pink & Salmon pink pro/flexmarkers.
I used Powder blue, Sky & Azure on the balloon and Turquoise, lime & canary on his hat.
I also used a little warm grey to add some shading.

It's a simple card but really please with how effective it has turned out and will def be using more of these fab images.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
