When Pigs Fly..../PS Sparks-Aug. Designer Draft

Guess what? I made a card and am entering it a couple days before it's due. Instead of the hour before on the day it's due. Please don't fall off your chair. ☺ This is for the current Paper Smooches Sparks - Designer Drafts challenge:

Here's the inspiration sketch:

Look! Pigs CAN fly!!! With the help of a kite! LOL! I stamped, colored and fussy cut that cute little piggy. She's adhered with foam squares, as well as the kite. I carefully cut around the pig's mouth with an X-Acto knife so I could fit the twine under it. It sort of worked. Like she's holding onto the kite tail with her mouth. But just in case she wants to squeal in joy, she's also holding on to the it with her front hoof!

You may have noticed that there's not a picture of the inside. That's because I didn't finish it yet. (Gasp!) I couldn't decide if this was going to be a birthday card or a congrats card, so I left it blank. I'll stamp the inside when I send the card out. Easily done!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
