Designed2Delight DT Challenge: Pink & Orange

Hello everyone, today I am doing something NEW.  'What?' you say!
I'm HOSTING the Saturday Designed2Delight DT Challenge for the first time since I joined the Design Team.  (I could imagine what you might be saying here, but maybe I shouldn't, hee, hee)

Okay, how about some details already.  I chose a color challenge of
Both colors are being required.  You have the option of using neutrals (brown, gray, tan, black, white, & cream) along with the Pink & Orange. 

You may use any image, or a Designed2Delight image. And as you probably know, you have the chance to win a Designed2Delight image!  All the details are on the D2D blog.
This is my card which just refused to cooperate while I was taking the photo above. It would not stay nicely closed. That's because I tried the Tri-shutter fold for this card.  Also a first for me. Here is the open view.
This cute dancing mouse is part of the Designed2Delight 'Dancing Mice' set (which can be found here).  As is the sentiment.  I love it when sentiments are included in stamp sets.  Thanks Faith!

I was really tired the night I was trying to cut the orange pieces of cardstock to fit the front and back.  I finally gave up after 3 tries to fit the back piece.  I had so many little rectangular pieces of orange CS on my desk I figured I'd better stop before I kill off more cardstock! I had an easier time of it the next day.

I used Prismacolor pencils & OMS to color and BasicGrey papers from Green at Heart and Indian Summer..

I am entering the following challenges with this card:
Bee Crafty - summers here
Bearly Mine - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - bingo (flowers, brads, sentiment)
Whimsie Doodles - to die for

I really hope you will get some time to join in on this challenge.  For some super inspiration, go see the examples we have on the D2D blog.

ok first of all... oh my flippin' goodness that is the cutest and most adorable card I have seen!!!!

now... to what I came for... LOL!!! I have been working all weekend in trying to figure out why the Pile It On! feed stopped working and I finally figured it out! yay!!! I fixed it, but I would love if you can help me test it. I know that if you go and sign up now the feed is working now, but I want to know if you old subscribers can see it.
I think starting tomorrow the feed should be updating to previous subscribers. Can you let me know if it starts working w/o you having to do anything? Or if you can tell it to refresh or update without having to delete the feed and make it again?

Thanks a million in advance! I was wondering why our number of players was going down.
