Stamp Fairy Challenge DT card

Good monday all!
Well what a week last week! blogger was being so naughty and lost a lot of drafts that I had, my Rabbit was/is very poorly, we had a power cut, My Parents are caravanning and the idiot that was supposed to fix the caravan brakes used old parts and did a rubbish job but they did not know…. So when they were on the motorway they nearly had a terrible crash! They have had to pay twice for one job! but they are both ok so that is the main thing!!
Urgh! Where did all the sunshine go?
On a happy note I have made my Stamp Fairy DT card for a very special friend who keeps Pigs.
So come what may with the weather today,
Pigs with Umbrellas are ready to come out to play!
3 embellisments SF dt card piggy
te hehe I hope you like my card I am pretty pleased with it! 

For my card I have used Pigs Umbrellas and made it fun by adding colourful pearls onto the umbrella, I have used some Christmas papers(just love these ones)  I love this paper pad for all round year round cards too, they are Jovial Basic Grey.
I have also used the freebie umbrella which I have made a border instead of adding ribbon. and also added a little umbrella charm too! again I did not want to use ribbon as the card is for a guy… so I have added a brad.
You can find Pigs umbrellas here at Stamp fairy – pigs umbrellas,  For the freebie umbrella I have coloured them the same as the umbrella on the main image but I have added some stardust and glaze pens for the spots.
here are some fun challenges I would like to enter Smile

And we have a lovely Realise for you today too!

  18. This is so darn cute Samantha! Love, love, love the added dots on the umbrella to match your background paper. And the collage of umbrellas running across the card is such a creative touch - just pulls everything together so nicely. Terrific card. So glad you've shared it at Sweet Sketch Wednesday too.

  19. Thank you for leading me back to this card Samantha, sorry about that, the ribbon image instead of ribbon here is brilliant and if I can ask, did you already have that great charm? Or was there a wee bit 'o' shoppin for this one? hehe :) Anyway, thanks for joining us at Wags 'n Whiskers and I'm glad I got to see this, very inspiring!
