Can I use the GPL 3 for my code even when openFramework has a MIT license?

I am working on a live coding system for visuals. The visualization server is based on openFrameworks. Now i am planing to release my code base under GPL 3 license at GitLab.

The user needs to download the openFramework source code to compile and run my visualization server. I will not redistribute openFramework. Only my application code.

My question is:
Can I use the GPL 3 license for my code even when openFramework has a MIT license?

Thanks!

Short answer is: yes

Longer answer: If you wrote it, you own the copyright and you can put whatever license on it you like.
