Happily Ever After

Hi Guys! 
So todays card was made just for fun. (my favorite kind!)
I bought this Phindy digi some time ago but this is my first time using it. I thought it would make a fab wedding or anniversary card. You'd just have to be careful who you send it to. Some may not take too kindly to the piggies.
But they're very sweet!
I'm using an image by Phindy, colored with Prismacolors and paper by My minds eye and DCWV.


A close up of their porcine appeal...

And wait for it! The INSIDE!!
(See, my new resolution: Finish the insides.)
And, I have to say that I'm finding it much easier to do it at the time of creation than have to race around later to find a scrap or two that matches...

I would like to enter this in:
Shabby Tea Room :white plus bright
Phindy's : love
Wild Orchid: sentiment

Thanks for visiting!

A really cute card. I don't buy pigs myself, though I find them cute. I love the inside, too. And you're right about the best time to finish up the inside of your card. I also add something to the back, and I try to do it all when I finish the front, because if you let them pile up, it's a pain to get everything back together. (I'm also speaking from experience.) lol. Hugs, dj

Another adorable card! Those piggies are so cute! Here is the link for the flowers tutorial

They are easy peasy to make. If you want to make the larger flower as a single, just omit the steps for the second layer.
