Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #519 This Little Piggy

Good morning and welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #519.  Today we are using Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce.CCMC519
When I saw these colors I thought of the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and This Little Piggy.  My card didn't turn out the way I envisioned, but here it is.

I used a lot of "stuff" to make this card.  So, let's get started!

The card base is Shaded Spruce measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The patterned paper is from the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It's cut at 4 x 5 1/4.

I stamped three of the little pigs in Shaded Spruce directly on some of the Blushing Bride papers from Tropical Escape.  You'll have to cut these out with your snips.  

Use the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Squares Framelits to cut a square frame.  Before attaching the frame, use it to help you place the pigs where you would like them.  I cut the pigs so that you only see the part sticking out from the frame.  Glue down the pigs.  Add the frame using the Foam Adhesive Strips.

I made the leaves using the Tropical Chic stamp set and the Tropical Thinlits.  The two toned leaves are made by first stamping in the lighter color, Granny Apple Green, and then adding some of the Shaded Spruce ink directly to the stamp using a sponge dauber.  Stamp on Whisper White.  Before stamping another leaf, be sure to clean your stamp.  This keeps you from getting the darker Shaded Spruce on the Granny Apple Green pad.  Add the leaves using glue and dimensionals where the leaves hang over the frame.  Add the Blushing Bride flowers with glue.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Varied Vases.  Stamp on white in Shaded Spruce and cut apart.
