Daring Cardmakers, Create for Fun and a pig.

I finally found a use for my Sugar Nellie piggy that I have been dying to use since I bought it ages ago. The challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week is Old Macdonald's Farm so my little Porridge the Pig was perfect for this challenge. I also used the sketch at Create 4 fun. This is the first time I have joined in with this challenge. It is a simple sketch but I flipped it on it's side so that my image would fit better. Normally when I flip a sketch it turns out rubbish and I start again with the sketch the right way round, but because this was a simple sketch , it didn't confuse me lol, and it turned out okay.

I have had this striped paper in my stash for ages but couldn't find anything to match it, but today I was going through all my papers and found part of a K&Co matstack which had the green spotty paper on the reverse of one of the sheets and thought oh I know what that will go with. The flowers look really bright here, they are quite bright but not as bright as it shows here.
I don't know what this card will be for and I couldn't find a sentiment stamp to fit in the scalloped circle so I just done one in word. I thought it would be fun to write some of the words of Old Macdonald to fit in with the challenge.
I also couldn't find brads to match as my darling little Daughter Rhianna or monster might be more appropriate today lol, decided that she would take most of my brads and tip them all out!
Not so bad because I could just pick them up right? No wrong the little madam has hid them all and say's she can't remember where!! So I am left with a handfull of brads until I find them!
I had some of those pearl brads by papermania that I was moaning about the other week because all the pearls had fell, so I just stuck a green gem on it and hey presto a co-ordinating brad :)

Designer papers: S.E.I Hippy chick and K&Co hopscoth mat stack
Stamp: Sugar Nellie Porridge
Colouring: Copics
Embelishments: Prima flowers, brad base from Papermania and gems from my stash, ribbon from stash.
Sentiment: Computer generated in word and cut with small classic scalloped circle Nestabilities.
