The Colours Of Autumn/Fall

Well my previous post was bright and colourful .. like a rainbow on a bright sunny day .... and now I have a card  in Autumn colours.

I coloured this gorgeous Meljen's Mouse with Acorns the other day and tonight I finally added him to a card.
This image was a real delight to colour.  All the areas are large so it's not to hard to stay in the lines and you don't need a heap of colours.

I forgot to write down the colours but I think I used :-
Acorns - E97, E33, E37, YR23, E47, E57
Mouse - C1, C3, C5 R20, R22

I used some Cuttlebug dies for the leaves and then just stuck it all together.  I used a thick needle to pierce the holes in the card stock at the front ... but I must admit I cheated for the inside of the card and used a brown pen marker to draw dots.

I haven't put a sentiment on the front of the card as it just made it seem unbalanced.  Hope you like it :)

 This is the front of the card .....

 A view from the side..............

 Inside .. sorry about the shadow.

and finally the cute little fellow himself .....

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
