reach for the stars

Hello!  Well, it's been a gazillion years since I entered any kind of card making challenge or contest.  And when I actually first saw the announcement for MFT's Superstar Card Contest I was not going to participate.  But something clicked last night and all of a sudden I felt kind of competitive!  And did you see the prize they are giving out?  Wow, very generous!  So why not?  I'm gonna enter.  And I might even enter the max 3 times.  Who knows?

So here is entry number 1.

I love the Birdie Brown sets over at MFT.  So stinkin' cute!  And for a while I couldn't color up these cute piggies from the Hog Heaven set because I had run out of ink in a couple of my pink Copics.  But finally got the refills over the weekend so this all kind of worked out.  The little piggy with the angel wing, so adorable!

The Reach for the Stars sentiment is from MFT's Happy Graduation set which I got when they had their huge retirement sale.  Piggies can have dreams too, you know.  The sentiment I heat embossed in a gold color.  I also blended the background with distress inks.  I stenciled in the white stars using MFT's vertical Starry Sky stencil and added in some glitter.  Added some glitter on to the piggy's wing too.  Then added a tiny bit of gold star confetti.  Yup, those were kind of tricky being so tiny but I did it.

The clouds are from MFT's End of the Rainbow die set.  I kind of love this card.  And I'm glad I decided to enter the contest because I don't think I would've paired a graduation set with piggies if I hadn't. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hoping to get a couple more cards into the contest before the deadline.
