Pile It On! Challenge - Just Because

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we're asking you to make a card:

'Just Because'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Stamp n Doodle:


The prize for the lucky winner is two Stamp n Doodle images of their choice!

Now, my card's a little bit silly...I found this Hambo 'Floating Pig' image in my box...I printed it out absolutely ages ago...and I thought he'd make someone smile...so I coloured him using watercolour pencils to match the bright and cheerful 'Hippity Hoppity' papers by We R Memory Keepers. I distressed all of the edges, matted the papers on to kraft card, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the brads are BasicGrey, and the buttons (threaded with twine from the Ribbon Girls) are from my stash. I coated the piggy's balloon with some Glossy Accents, then added a sentiment done on computer...I couldn't resist! lol


Here are the challenges I've Piled On!:
