No Coloring Allowed!!

Eek! No coloring allowed! lol
I love that about the House Mouse challenge blog. I think it's so cute they start their posts with 'Eek'! How fun!
So here's the deal. This challenge had NO COLORING! When I saw this, I thought, "Yeah, I can work that in no problem!". Well, the challenge ends in two days and about 16 hours! I best get moving! 
Here's my take on this, which by the way, turned out much more difficult than I thought it would be!
It's my usual twisted easel card and here it is open:
Here's a view from the top so you can see the sentiment:
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:

You know, I hadn't thought about this until just now. I've listed I want to enter all these challenges and in the past, it's been all about the digi. This was a real stamp I've used. Huh... well... I suppose... I'm gonna find out if it's not allowed! lol
Thanks for stopping by!
