GSD Parachute Piggy

Hi. I've got a card I've made that I'd like to share with a really cute piggy on it. This is a Garda Steiners Digital Stamp called Parachute Piggy. Isn't he/she adorable!! This is the image for this month's GSD Progressive Challenge. If you've not seen or heard about the challenge why don't you pop over to check it out! It's so much fun! Also while your there you should pop over to the Gerda Steiners Designs store to find loads more adorable and cute critters.. There are even some freebies.

I started our by printing him out and five extra Parachutes. I've coloured them with a mixture of Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils. Then I fussy cut the parachutes and stuck them together to create this 3D parachute that can fold flat for postage. Then I added black thread from the parachute to his hooves. I added clouds which I fussy cut, shaded and stuck to foam pads. To finish off I added the die cut letters 'Floating By Just To Say...' inside it says 'Have A Happy Birthday' it would also work with 'Have A Great Day.'

Here's a close up of the cute piggy.

I have had lots of fun creating this card. I hope that you like it. I'll be adding this card on the GSD Facebook Group. There is also the GSD Blog which is full of wonderful inspiration ideas on how to use all of her adorable images. And the Share Your Design GSD Challenge.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges
