Everywhere an Oink Oink

Hi everyone!  I made this card to enter into our county fair.  I have to take it there tomorrow (Thursday) and just made it tonight.  The category is paper tole.  I looked it up and the definition is taking parts of the same image and popping it up.  I can do that!  The problem was finding the right stamp (of which I have many!)!  So I chose this Miss Peggy stamp from High Hopes.  I stamped it three times on X-Press It Blending Card and cut out the head from one and the nose and ears from another.   The head is actually on one of those wobble things, so it moves.  The image is colored with copic markers.  I stamped the chicken wire (from a company called Stamp Camp) onto a wood grain paper from Authentique.  The sentiment is also from High Hopes and I stamped it on the backside of the woodgrain paper.  It's cut with a WPlus9 flag die.  I accented the card with a button strung with some floss and some pearls.

Here's a blurry side view.  The only thing I don't like about that wobble thing is that the back side of it has writing on it.  Can you see it?  How dumb!

I used this sketch from Retro Sketches.
I hope I get some recognition at the fair!  If not, it was fun creating this one!  Thanks for stopping by!
