Pigs Might Fly!

Hello again and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the  world (wide web!)
I made this card in honour of me actually winning a challenge - I would have thought I'd have seen Pigs Fly before I won anything, but there, it shows you what do I know? (Fortunately)
I have been itching to give my new Martha Stewart Optic Dot punch a trial run since I bought it at the beginning of the month.
I am entering this card into the challenge over at Pink Elephant, they have a colour combo theme of 'Red, Pink & Brown' I love these colours together, you will see more of that combo from me in the future.
I am also entering this into the Totally Stampalicious challenge whose theme is very similar this week with 'Pink & Red'
It fits nicely into the Penny Black challenge as that is where my stamp is from (I've loved these cute little piggies since I bought them), their theme is 'January Sales' and I got my punch in January though it wasn't in the sale!
Simon Says Stamp  have a theme of 'Animal Antics' which I'm sure flying piggies is perfect for!
All the other materials in this card (apart from the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts) were from my ever growing, enormous stash. Funny even now I've started to use it, it doesn't seem to be going down!
