Guesting at Color Throwdown

What am I doing posting this early on a Wednesday morning?
Well I'm here as the guest over at Color Throwdown!
I won their challenge with this card and was asked to be their Guest Star Stamper for this week's post.
Here is my card for your inspiration.

I've used the colours from this week's swatch plus some kraft card for the base and frame.

The stamp set used is a cute new one from MFT called Piles of Fun, that I picked up after my last Copic class up in Warrington, I couldn't resist the cute woodland creatures.

I stamped each of the coloured elements with black Memento ink before using Copics to colour, then fussy cut them.
My frame was cut from kraft with an MFT frame die and some outline leaves from the set were stamped in the centre with Peanut Brittle Memento. They were much darker when stamped originally but even with two inkings, they don't show up that much against the kraft but it adds a little added texture to the background.
The little mouse was glued flat and the barrel and leaves popped up on pads, as was the frame, once I'd stamped the greeting from the set. I think the mouse looks like he's blowing a kiss of thanks!
Please check out the fab DT inspiration over at CT and then join us in the gallery.
