Birthday Card for Anej

Hi everyone :-D  

Today I finished a Birthday Card for Anej. Anej is my nephew, son of my dear cousin, beautiful little boy with big brown eyes, who turned 3 this Wednesday. Auntie is a little bit late with the card, but he won´t mind. ;-)

Anej´s favorite cartoon character is Peppa Pig, so a pig was the only reasonable image to use on this card. :-D I used super cute From the Heart Stamps 'Hamlet PigWit Pig Out', perfect for this occasion. Digital stamp set includes main image, image border, printable pencil shaded image and two bonus sentiments. I used pencil shaded image.

For my card layout I used lovely sketch095 with a twist from {heart} sketches by Imke Ludvig. Twist was to use a black or colored card base. There was also an inspirational color board, but I didn´t use it.

Card dimensions are 98 mm x 143 mm (3 7/8" x 5 5/8").

List of supplies:
  • From the Heart Stamps 'Hamlet PigWit Pig Out' 
  • Florence cardstock paper, Canvas Texture (dark grey, but it looks like dark green
