I can't help it!  I've been singing the Mickey Mouse theme song ever since I saw these great images over at Sassy Cheryl's!
See??  Aren't they adorable??  This is Noah is All Ears and Sassy Sally is All Ears.  They stole my heart right away and I had to have them!  I used to watch the Mickey Mouse show when I was growing up and I loved it!  Cheryl did a great job creating these two!  I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.
 I followed the sketch at Sketch n Stash.  The triangles in the corners had me stumped a bit since I knew the layer right under the image would be fabric.  I didn't want to put more paper on top and I don't have a corner punch that would work there.  I am a stitcher from way back so the idea of stitching the corners was natural, then I graphed and stitched the MM silhouettes.  The challenge at Papertake is Spots & Stripes.  The spots were easy, I had this great, red, spotted DP.  The stripes I stitched onto my scrap of linen fabric.
 I added more spots to the inside with my swiss dot embossing folder.  It really seems to capture the same feeling from the front.
I used the swiss dot folder on the back too.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl - Favorite Color Combo (How could it be ANYTHING else with these 2 images??)
Sketch n Stash - The fabric and dotted DP are from my stash
Papertake - Spots & Stripes
City Crafter - use fabric

Blessings & Hugs,
