Carousel Pig



Happy March!  I'm so glad to say goodbye to February... I've had it with all the snow, rain, and ice.  Hopefully, the month of March will be kinder.  Today is release day at Doodle Pantry, and I have a whimsical card to share which showcases  one of the new sets, Carousel Pig.

Carousel Pig is also the featured product for Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 44 which starts  today on the Doodle Pantry blog at 11:30 AM.  All  participants in the challenge that use a Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment) will be emailed this set for free.  Here's a preview:




Now about my card, I used the outline image from the set and dressed her up with digital papers from the set as well as bright happy colors, flowers and ribbon.  Coloring with done with Copics.  I also used one of the digi papers from another new set, Grunge Wood Mini Digi Paper 4 Pack, to paper-piece the pole and seat.  

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox -- Something Spooled (I used ribbon)
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 7 -- Anything Goes/Use Flowers

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting!

  4. This is so adorable! I love the way you used the ribbon to frame the image. Beautiful roses too. Great card! We are expecting another winter storm today. I too wish March would bring spring in a hurry but we are supposed to be well below normal for this time of year. Will spring ever get here? Have a wonderful Sunday!
