Sitting on my stamp shelf is the So Very set that I really like, but have trouble using. So when I saw this stamp on the Hambo Stamps website, I knew I had to get it. Then they posted it to their Seconds Sale when the manufacturer printed it backwards. It was fate. He arrived in my mailbox a few days later (LOVE their fast and cheap shipping!)
The striped paper is from CTMH, I forget the name. I also used some blue textured cs and scraps of pink, brown and white cs. The sentiment is stamped in Close to Cocoa. Mr. Piggy is stamped in basic black, colored with colored pencils and blended with OMS. The white panel with the image is sponged around the edges with Close to Cocoa applied with a cotton ball. I find this gives a better "puff" of color than the sponge that I have. The ribbon is from the clearance bin at AC Moore and is actually a dotted grosgrain that I reversed to show the solid side. That's it, nothing fancy on this card. It was very quick to put together.
I hope others can enjoy my humor. I'm going to send this card to my mom, who will know the ending of the phrase Happier Than.. and get a chuckle out of it. Thanks for looking!
