Just Us Girls #315 COLOR WEEK!

                             Hi there! It's color week at Just Us Girls and Chris has a great one for us! Use ORANGE, PURPLE AND BLACK on your card or project!  Very timely, me thinks!  Please check out our BLOG for loads of inspiration with these colors!  We'd love to have you enter!  You may win the chance to be a guest designer with us early next year!!

                                          
Here's my card:
I have been just crazy about MFT for a long time, but especially this year.  I love, love the Harvest mouse set and have made a few cards with these cute little fellows recently.  This one is stamped in Archival Black on watercolor paper and colored and "watercolored" with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I just love how his purple sweater and orange vest look so cozy!  My gingham background stamp is stamped in Cajun Craze onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The "purple"  on my card is actually Blackberry Bliss (cut from an MFT die)-I just can't seem to pick up my other purples-I love this one sooooo much! I did use a thin frame of black and then mounted it all on a white card base.  I'm not sure the BOO! die fits the cute little mouse, but it sure fit my card perfectly!! haha
It's from L'l inkers and cut from Apricot Appeal (which some company should make again!!!) sponged with distress Spiced Marmalade.
Thanks for looking! You have until Thursday, October 22 to join in on this week's color challenge over at Just Us Girls!! So, I hope you can make some time to create this weekend!

I don't know if the Boo fits, but who cares, it's as darling as that image and I love the way you distressed it! I'll have to get that die myself. Just such a sweet card with your gingham background. Love those Harvest Mice too, beautiful coloring!

It looks like he's popping out from under the leaves and saying boo! (And I know that's a new die that you just wanted to use!) I think this is so adorable! Great coloring as usual Cheryl!
