Sleeping mouse

I tried to cram in as many challenges as I could for this one. I picked the colors that If the Shoe Fits blog wanted and they wanted Orange, Brown and Pink. I had an orangier orange, but decided it was too close to my pink (which is an orangeish pink IMHO) and hunted for a lighter orange. I doodle stitched on the orange and on the inner star shape because Crafty Muse had the sketch I wanted to use and they wanted doodling too. I altered the sketch a little by putting the dots outside the star shape. The dots are pink glitter glue by Studio G. My dairy queen curlie-q's flattend into ovals which wouldn't have been bad if they had all pointed towards the center better. I used my Sure Cuts a Lot software to create the star shape and cut it out with my Cricut. The Cuttlebug Challenge wanted a digital stamp so I chose the baby mouse in the tea cup (former Simply Sassy image). I colored him with my Prisma markers and cut him out. Dare You 2 DigiStamp wanted to see distressing so I used my little pink tool to rough up the edges of the inner star then ran the outer star thru my Cuttlebug machine and sanded the pink color to show the white core.

As always thanks for looking
and have a great weekend.
