Somebody squealed

So Lawn Fawn makes cutesy stamps.  I always loved them but thought they would be best for making cards for children.  Recently I realized that when anyone of any age looked at a card made with them, they always smiled.  Lawn Fawn cards just have that effect on people! I had to come up with a project for a card making day with friends and decided that I would use my new LF set Critters on the Farm.  I found a cute inspiration card on Pinterest made by Annie Rose and loved it.  You can see Annie's card here.  And here is how my version came out...

I used Pan Pastels and one of the Soft Tools to color the sky.  I was in St. Pete at Whim-so-Doodle last week and bought two colors and some Soft Tools to try and I am in looovvee with them!!  The color is so rich and creamy and easy to put down.  I can't believe I've never tried them before.  I know I'll be needing more colors soon! 

Here is  what the inside looks like.  This little piggy looks adorable in his party hat!  The hat is from a Stampin' Up set called Sketched Birthday.  It was a little too big for the pig so I cut off about 1/4 inch at the bottom.

I typed up the messages on my computer and printed them out on card stock.  I'll take some pics of how I folded the banner and post them tomorrow.  
Here are close-up pictures, and a coloring/shading list.  

Hope this card made you smile!!
