GIVE!!!!!

Hello dear friends: After posting THIS card earlier this morning, which came together in a flash, I have another card to share with you today that I made to participate in the Pals Paper Arts color challenge and the CASology  week #172, Cue Card "GIVE" challenge.
Here is my card.
I love the House Mouse siblings, they are just the cutest, most adorable little mice ever!! so, when I saw the CASology cue card "GIVE" I immediately grabbed this little image, but it's really very small so I needed something more on this space, something for Monica to stand on so, I went to my Halloween box of stamps and found my retired 2011-2012 SU set called "Jack of all Trades" with this fantastic pumpkins plus the faces, etc.  I just stamped the image onto a panel of Ninah Solar White card stock with SU Tangelo Twist ink, (solid images do not stamp well on water color paper), then I stamped the little mouse on top of it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and masked a portion of the little tail to stamp the pumpkin's curly cues with Wild Wasabi ink.
I colored Monica with my Prismacolor pencils but I didn't use the paper stumps and baby oil this time because the oil tends to run outside the lines on the images on the Ninah Card Stock, so I just used the pencils to color and shade her little body.
 Then I created a bit of soil for the pumpkin to sit on and added the sign, both the grass and the sign are from Purple Onion Designs, I also colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.
To follow the PPA color challenge, I colored the cheese with Hello Honey and the ribbon with Blackberry Bliss. 
Now, I don't know if this is CAS card, I created my little scene at the bottom of the panel leaving plenty of white space on top but I'm afraid it might be a bit ''busy'' for CAS. In any case, I'm going to take a leap of faith and submit it to the CASology challenge, I hope it's ok.
This are the banners that inspired my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
