Waltzingmouse October Blog Party

This is my second post for today, for the Serendipity Stamps Thanksgiving Invite blog hop, please scroll down.
It's the 17th of the month and that means it's party time, Waltzingmouse Blog Party time! This month was especially fun because it is a color challenge.

Looks like Halloween colors, don't they? Although I love Halloween cards, having made way more than I could ever use, I decided to use these colors for a card that has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween.

Here's my card:

I really love the cheerfulness of this card and it was lots of fun to color, very simple and so many different ways to go with each color. I used Waltzingmouse stamps French Country to stamp a sheet of patterned paper and colored it with a variety of copics. The frame and sentiment are also from and stamped with a pattern from Heirloom patterns. The pleats are made with patterned paper from PTI Patterned paper packs and since the highlight of French Country is a cute rooster, I added a little die cut rooster...just because! Make sure to check out all the other great projects made for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party. I bet you are going to see a lot of Halloween and "other" cards using a very pretty color combination.
