Pigs might fly

I can't be the other crafter out there completely obsessed by the Pop-Up Box?!

This was made this week for an order, the brief being "pigs"!
The digi-stamp I used for this is "floating pig" by Hambo Stamps.
The balloon(s) came as part of the image, but I separated this out and printed several in different sizes to separately "attach" the piggy using bakers twine. 
I mounted the balloons and hand cut clouds on acetate strips. 
The balloons and pig are coloured using the following Promarkers:
PIG: Dusky Pink, Pale Pink.
BALLOONS: Blender, Cerise, Cyan, Grass, Bright Green, Tulip Yellow, Buttercup.
The sentiment and name is stamped in "Seedless Preserves" Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  The papers are from my stash (as always I haven't a clue where they came from!) and the pink cardstock is by American Crafts.
Please can I enter this card in the following challenges:
