Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Challenge #18

This is my 2nd post for today. Please scroll down to my previous post to see my Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday Challenge card for today.

It is time for another installment of Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Challenge. This week Madelynn challenged us with another great sketch.

Here is her sketch:
For sketch challenges I usually try to follow the sketch as closely as possible. For this one however, I just couldn't get those 3 little embellishments to work in the top left corner. Instead I just added a brad to each corner.
For those of you who know me well, you know I am the total nerd who tries to stay weeks ahead of any design team deadlines. I am not a "night before" card maker....until now. Our weekend was packed full of family time and I didn't find enough stamping time to get this card done ahead of time so I sat down late yesterday afternoon to work on this. Luckily for me I just got a huge envelope of DRS Designs stamps in the mail yesterday and in it were these adorable pig images with the coordinating sentiment. I thought they would work great with Madelynn's sketch.
Here is my card:
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, Copic markers, American Crafts brads, Amuse ribbon, Cuttlebug birthday embossing folder, foam dimensionals.
