A Piglet Birthday

I love how this little Piglet card turned out!!
Over on Sharon's blog, she issued another Stamp Simply Challenge (#11) called Stick It On. Her challenge was to NOT stamp your main image. We were allowed to stamp backrounds and sentiments but were to use something else as a main image.
Well, I've had these Winnie the Pooh window clingers since my son was just a little boy. I found them in a drawer a few months ago and moved them into my craft room....knowing I'd eventually find something to do with them. Well, here is that something!!
Isn't it cute how Piglet is peeking through the window. That is a frame from KI Memories Funky Frams & Labels sheet. I got it from Rhea at R&R Scrapbooking. She donated some gift bags to our Innisfail Indulgence event in July (how thoughtful and kind of her) and a sheet of these cool frames were in my package. As you know, I am on a mission to USE, USE, USE!!!
I stuck a piece of sticky note in the place where the window would be (a mask) and then stamped the background stamp on the white cardstock. Then, when I put the frame and Piglet on the white cardstock, it would be solid white behind Piglet. The black lines are doddled around the white panel. This makes the front of the card feel finished.
Supplies: Cardstock - Pixie Pink, Whisper White (Stampin' Up), Ink - Pixie Pink, Basic Black (Stampin' Up), Stamps - Soft Swirls (Stampin' Up), Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink), Accessories - Piglet window clinger (manufacturer unknown), ribbon (unknown as it was a gift), balck marker (SU).
If you make a card using something other than a stamp for the main image, post a link in the comment section so I can have a look!!
Thanks for visiting.
