Three Little Piggies !

Good Morning!
I finally had the urge to sit down and make a card yesterday morning just for fun!
I can't remember the last time that I said that or even had the chance to craft simply because I wanted to, not because I had to. Fingers crossed this means the crafty mojo has returned.

I treated myself to this super cute stamp set by MFT and of course a couple of extra bits jumped into my order too ...
I decided to create the card on a 4x4 card blank and tried to keep all the focus onto the actual stamps. I also inked the stamps up with a faint ink so that once they were coloured you couldn't see the outline ... just for a change :)
 INGREDIENTS -
MFT 'Hog Heaven' Stamp & matching Die Sets
Ladybird Sprinkles by Doodlebug
 Paper Doily & Cheesecloth

INKS USED -
