I Want to be a Superstar!

Card Design Superstar

In my dreams, I could be a My Favorite Things Superstar, I'd have all of the cutest new stamp sets, and color like a Superstar, too ...

 ... one out of three ain't bad:  I do have their cutest new sets!  [notice I used the plural here - yes. there will be second helpings =]  So!  Here I go, throwing caution to the wind!!

Using the new Birdie Brown - Harvest Mouse -  I stamped one of the little apple-picking mice in Memento Rich Cocoa on a stitched square of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  After coloring, I added the extra little bushel of apples as an added embellishment, which was die cut using the matching dies.   A pierced rectangle of green,  and a pierced rectangle for the perfect sentiment,  all placed atop a Hot Fudge card base:

Inside sentiment:
"A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck!"

I cannot forget to thank those possible for the Copic coloring:
Jeanne, and Barb, I am so blessed by your generosity - I only had to reach for those old S.N. pens two times!  Of course let's not forget Torico, who draws the most loveable little Birdie Brown characters for us to color!!!

Thanks, MFT for this fabulous contest - you certainly have made me reach, and pushed me out of my comfort zone!
