EEK a Mouse in Disguise

Well I had this cute image left over from another project and thought it would make a cute Halloween card. There are a lot of Halloween challenges right now and I’m entering it in a couple. Of course one of my favourite ones is House Mouse and Friends , there you will find it is a colour challenge to use Green, Yellow, Orange and Black optional is Halloween. Well the colours just “screamed” Halloween.  I am also entering it in Clear it our Tuesday that was Halloween as well.  Since I used my Fleur dis lis doily die I’m entering it in Crop Stop Challenge Blog challenge for “dainty doily”. If you have some time stop in to all of these blogs they are my fav. Now on with the card. Oh dear I almost forgot about the Drunken Stamper's Blog they have a Halloween challenge too, they are just back from a summer hiatus and their blog is awesome too so don't forget to drop by to check them out as well.
                        Halloween Pumpkin
I cut the circles and doily with my cuttlebug and dies, the background is embossed with the distressed  stripes as soon as I decided that I distressed the image and the other two layers. the flower ribbon boarder is a punch from Stampin’ up. The orange pearls were once white and coloured with a permanent marker. I coloured the image with pencil crayons and oms. Thanks for dropping by today and come back again soon.
