Thank You Mushrooms

Awhile back I was lucky to win the Autumn Mood challenge over at Challenge Up Your Life and was asked if I'd like to Guest Design... of course I would.

This month is a beautiful colour challenge.


I've tried to get as close to the colours as possible and took my inspiration from the image...

Its been a long time since I made card using only die cuts and it made a nice change from colouring.

The mushrooms are from Alexandra Renke and the greenery is from Tim Holtz all coloured using Distress Oxides as close as I could get with limited colours.

I splashed gold and pearlescent Gansai Tambi on the die cuts then just arranged them on the card front.

I would have liked to have added 'so mush' to the end of the 'thank you' but my printer had a tizz quite some time ago and I've not got around to replacing it.

To finish I added a few red Kaiser Craft pearls to replicate the berries.

I hope you'll find time to stop by and play at Challenge Up Your Life :)

    Your mushroom card is fantastic. I like how you created a fall scene in the forest. Super nice combination of prescribed colours.
