Hambo Stamps Challenge

Hambo Stamps is holding a card challenge and is offering this free "Shellphone Pig" digital image to use (found here). I had a lot of different ideas for this, but decided on a beach scene when I came across this great coloring image at Lee Hansen Graphics.

I popped up his snout and his arm along with the shellphone for some extra dimension since this card does not have a lot of layers on it. I would have popped up more, but you can only get so much done in between puppy naps ;)
Because of the size I made the image, I didn't have much room for embellishments, so I just added a tag with a sentiment.

This card is also for the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant - "Animals"
Creative Belli Blog - Use a metal tag on your card
Charisma Cardz - "Tag It" - use a tag on your project
Cute Card Thursday - "Eye Eye" - use eyelets on your project
Bee Crafty - "Summer Fun"
Lili of the Valley - "Animals"
