Today's card is my DT project for FarmQuest and our theme this fortnight is "Troughs, Crates, or Buckets." They can be metal or wood as long as they are one of those things and reflect the "farm country" requirement for all of our challenges.
I used a fun image from Angie's Digital Stamps and it's one I've had for a long, looong time. I don't even know if Angie's shop is still open. The barnyard pig just looks so happy munching his way through the full trough and I thought he'd make a great birthday card. :-D The image was colored with water color paints, then cut with a Sizzix scalloped circle die. The frame was cut with another die from that same set, a size larger.
I printed the sentiment and cut it with an Avery Elle die, then I used a ProMarker to ink the edges of it. The flowers with gem centers are from Petaloo and I thought they gave a nice finishing touch to the card.
