I Love You Sew Much....

Hello and welcome back Peeps!!
This card was created for the new challenge at House-Mouse &Friends MC.
The challenge is hosted by our sweet and talented Teamie, Dorte, who has chosen the theme:  "I Love You Sew Much". We are to incorporate sewing (real or faux) into our Love projects, or,we could  simply use a HMD image featuring some form of sewing. 

This cute House-Mouse Designs image of the mice sewing a quilt was too fun and fit the theme but I wasn't sure about the colors.  This is a large image to color, and as you know, this girl is simply not into Coloring! After a third attempt,  just went with multi shades of red for every object here. LOL!!
