Birthday piggy

Howdy friends!  I hope you're all having a great Friday and are going to have fabulous weekends!  Today I have a fun little piggy to share.  He's one of the past freebies from Miss Kate Cuttables (don't worry, you can snag him for only $.50 if you missed him as a freebie), but the birthday hat I cut myself.  I have about a million birthday hat svgs and cricut cuts, but the bad thing about being in this little bitty craft room is that everything gets stashed away and then I don't want to get it all back out again, just for a triangle.  So, since I had already put my Cameo away to make room on my table for the actual crafting, scissors it was.  :)  I figured he was a birthday pig because I'm a firm believer that you can do whatever you want on your birthday, and I imagine splashing in the mud is just what a pig would like.

I got the background label svg from Bird's Cards- it was a freebie too!  Then I layered it on top of some MME paper and added three buttons in the top corner and a sentiment from Pink by Design in the bottom corner (btw, I love the Pink by Design "Artisan Tags 2" set that this is from because it's perfect for those times when  you want to add a sentiment but your cut ended up taking up more space on the card than you had planned.)

I added some Firefly stickles around the green part of the tag because I thought my pig needed some sparkle.  I like to put stickles on colors that are similar but slightly different to see what happens- this paper is actually a sea green, and I think it turned out looking nice with the brighter green of Firefly.  It muted the Firefly stickles a little bit but livened up the pastel-ness of the sea green.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
Die Cuttin' Divas- Birthday with Three Embellishments
Craftin' Desert Divas- On the Farm
Simon Says Stamp Challenge- Anything Goes
All That Stickles- Firefly
