All Tucked in for the Night

     It's Friday again and we have a new, weekly, challenge starting at QKR Stampede.  As usual, we have our "Anything Goes" theme but we also have our optional twist - the theme of "Quilting or Stitching."  I did my best to accomplish both on this one card.  I used the QKR image "All Tucked In" and I think it's totally adorable!

     I colored the image with my ProMarkers, then cut it with a die from an unbranded die maker.  The polka dot frame for the image is also cut with another die from that same set.  I cut the denim and yellow papers for background "quilt" with a chain stitched die from Gina Marie Dies.  The sentiment is printed and matted with blue and yellow layers.

     I decided not to add any embellishments because I wanted the quilt background to showcase the image.  I felt that anything added on top of it would take away from that effect.

     I hope we're going to see you playing in our challenge this week.  Remember, while we'd love to see you using a QKR Stampede image (and you'll be in a separate draw just for QKR users), you can use any image from any company to enter our challenge.  See you over there.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

OMGoodness, this is so precious. It reminds me of Topo Gigo on the Ed Sullivan show. I loved that little mouse. He wasn't on every week. I know, because I cried whenever it got to the end of the show and he didn't show up.
