Deedee's Brown and Green challenge

This little Piggy is so cute, I just had to dress her as a girl. This image and the sentiment is from Deedee's digis http://craftingwithdeedeesdigis.blogspot.com. Just one of Deedee's many adorable images! The challenge was to use brown and green. I really had a tough time with this. Deciding on the shades of green and the patterned papers and embellies was really reeking havoc on the ole' noggin'! I decided (in my eye) that with these two colors, there definately needed to be a substantial amount of white or cream to go with these dark shades I have here. I think without the white and cream it would have looked like MUD! But then Piggies love mud....."but not on my card"! The Deets.....Paper is Basic Grey "Sublime" The plaid and dotted paper is from PTI chocolate remix. The very dark green is from my stash. I used cuttlebug on the oval and on the dark green horizontal strip. I doodled some faux stitching on the white edges. I used a sizzix die to cut the corner embelly. And I used SU. punch for the dark brown corner. The little "friends" on the horizontal piece is a MS punch (LOVE!). Punched in plaid and in dark brown....attached them offset to make it look like a shadow. I thought this punch was perfect for this sentiment.
Since this cutie pig had to be a girl, I tied a ribbon on her ear from my stash. I used a MS punch to make her bouquet. The big flower is the one from the digi. I cut it out and shaped it a little and added stickles in the center. The 2 white flowers are from my stash and yellow stickles were added to the center. I colored her with copic markers E00, E01, E02, YG91 and E55. Her snout is R01, R02, and RV32. Hope you like her......She wants to be your friend!
