Happy Mouse Day

When I saw these little mice, I knew I had to have them.  They are TOO cute!  This weekend, I watched some Copic coloring videos by Suzanne Dean (particularly this one on fur), and this morning I tried it.  I still have a LONG way to go to get anywhere close to her level, but practice makes perfect, right?  I combined a couple of challenges here - first of all, I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch (of course).  I also used the Make It Monday challenge to emboss just a part of the image.  I had made this card for the Copic Creations' challenge to use complimentary colors, but that one ended. This week's challenge is to use shades of blue, so I think I'm still good.  And last, but certainly not least, I used distress ink on the side of the circle for the current Digi Design House challenge to Distress.  You still have until Sunday at 7PM to play in that challenge... hope you will play along!  As you can see, it doesn't have to be anything crazy on the distressing.
