I made this birthday card for my niece Josie who just turned 11. I used one of my favorite new sets from the catalog called Button Buddies. This is one of 3 sets that I earned for FREE because I got a new recruit during a Convention Challenge! Someone said that free stamps stamp better, and I have to  say, I agree! When I first saw this cute little pig, I thought of a piggy bank. It was a little challenging getting the money to fit though. I made a little belly band for the bills and made it as snug as I could. I attached it to  the stamped pig image and stamped another pig, cut it out, added a little curly tail, and attached it using 3 stacked dimensionals on each side. I recently watched the Workshop Wow DVD that I got at Memento Mall, and one of the clever demonstrators showed how to make a rectangle border. I used the Scallop Squares Duo Die and cut out two squares. I layered one on top of the other and covered up the seam with ribbon. Thanks for coming by and stop back tomorrow! Good night!
