Come Here Lil Piggie

Happy Saturday, everyone! Welcome to a new challenge at Catch The Bug! Are you ready to play along with us? How about playing with pastels this week? That's right, our challenge this week is to make a project using pastel colors. Easy, right? Remember, the prizes are prize packs of digi images from Bugaboo Stamps. A great prize, for sure, so come over and link up your creation with us for your chance to win!

For my project, today, I made this cutie patootie altered drink cup in monochromatic pastel pink.  I've used the image Pig - Flower, by Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The polka dot and chevron papers are from my stash. It's difficult to see in the pic, but I used nesting flower punches by Recollections to make little paper flowers to add all around the cup.  I think it came out really cute!

I am entering this altered drink cup in the following challenges:
