HMFMC #163 Color Challenge

Good Monday Morning All.  Today we have a brand new challenge over at House Mouse & Friends and this week I have picked the theme.  I decided to go with a color challenge using Amethyst (February's birthstone), white and one other color.  I'd like to share my card with you.
I used this completely adorable image titled "Nose To Nose In Flowers".  I colored it up with my Copics then cut it out with a SB die.  I pierced just the top and bottom of the die cut piece and then matted it all onto green and purple card stock.  The sentiment is made with a Cuttlebug die and the background paper was in my stash.  The gems were also in my stash for maybe 6 or 7 years now.  'Bout time I pulled them out and used them, don't you think?  I hope I have enticed you enough to hop over to House Mouse and Friends to see all the fantastic cards my Teamies made.  We would really be thrilled if you join in on the fun. We also have some terrific prizes that you might win from our
