Hambo Hoedown Sketch Challenge

It's time for a sketch challenge at Hambo Hoedown and since I had some new stamps from Hambo that I won recently, I decided to play along. Using the sketch for this week (found below) I made this funny birthday card. Of course I paper pieced the Floating Pig and balloon, layered it on embossed paper (Cuttlebug numbers) and added the lol sentiment, also from Hambo of course. 

Did you know that if you get published with Hambo stamps, they reward you with a gift certificate for more Hambo stamps? It sure is fun to get free stamps in the mail:)

I am also entering this in the Spots and Stripes challenge at Emergency Crafters.

Stamping smiles, Karen

LOL! It's precious! Love that sentiment with it too! Great way to use the embossing folder.
I have this same image and have never used it since the coloring of that little pig just scares me to death! Thanks for the inspiration to paper piece it instead!
Very cute card.
