It was my eldest daughter's birthday yesterday and this was my card for her. She reads my blog and even Pins some of my cards, so I knew I couldn't do this post until today :)  
She has been a real pig lover ever since she was a little girl. She loves all animals - but especially pigs!  
So I was so excited when I saw the new Bildmalarna release at Bunny Zoe's Crafts!
A cute Pig stamp and the girl looks just like my girl did when she was little too :) 

Pig Bildmalarna,  garden flowers die

The sentiment is from a Whimsy set called Everyday Moments.
The paper is from a beautiful pad by Teresa Collins called Summer Stories, but it looks as though Nikki has just sold out of it.  There is a great paper sale on now at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and there are still a lot of gorgeous papers to be had at a great price.  You can check them out Here.

I used a brand new Whimsy Die called Garden Flowers for the first time.  It's a great die with a few different flowers but I just thought these blue bells would look nice with the image. 
I also used the Magnolia Tilda Lace Die.

I sponged the edges with Antique Linen distress ink and used a little Star Dust Stickles on her wings.  I also added some flat backed pearls and a Ladies Club button.

Stamps : Pig (Bildmalarna), Everyday Moments (Whimsy)
