When Pigs Fly Coffee Card

After recently shopping in a store dedicated to papercrafting, the owner presented me with a gift of assorted DSP because I was a first time customer. Included were two sheets that I used in this card: the flying pigs and saying on one sheet and the background paper on the other. With the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop underway, I thought this was a fun way to use the paper.
The background paper was adhered to the card base. A computer generated "pledge" was die cut along with the DSP, qualifying that the pledge was not true! The pig was fussy cut, the clouds die cut and they were popped up with foam tape. The inside of the card was decorated with strips of DSP.
