Quick and Colourful

I was playing today and made this simple quick and colourful card.



The background is another one of my inky backgrounds - Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.  The stamps are by Lavina and were free with a magazine.  The toadstools are stamped in Versafine and embossed with clear detail powder and the stars are just stamped but not embossed.  The image is cut out with the second largest of the Spellbinders Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles Two and I have added ultra fine glitter for sparkle.  This was a very quick little card to make and I think I could use it for a birthday, thank you or whatever really.  I could add a little sentiment to the front too if I wanted.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Lavinia Challenge 10 - Autumn Colours
Buckwells Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes

If you have the time, please pop over to these fab blogs for a peek!

Thank you for visiting me - I love it when you do!  I will be visiting blogland tomorrow to catch up with everyone.  Take care.  Christine  xxx

What a cute toadstool card. I like all the movement in the card with the randomly stamped background and the ornate trimmings along the edge.

Ripe Persimmon is my (latest) favourite and I love how you used it in this card with the other beautiful colours. I also love the die you used, it looks beautiful. Anne xx
