Mushroom Birthday Card

I saw a card this morning that used a mushroom as the focal point and it caught my eye to such degree that I wanted to make one of my own.  I kept playing around with different papers to use for the background and any patterned paper I chose was far too busy so I stayed with a clean piece of white.  Only problem with that was when I tried to take a picture.  ;o)

For this card I used:

Tinkerbell and Friends for the mushroom cut at 2 1/2"

Paper Doll Dress Up for the fence cut at 1" (I painted over the fence with white distressing paint and then lightly inked over it with a light shade of brown and gently used a distressing tool along the tops of the pickets)

Pooh and Friends for the sun cut at 1" and butterflies cut at 3/4"

Accent Essentials for my background - this piece was skewed to measure 3 3/4" x 5 1/4"

The cloud I had cut some time ago and then never used so it's from my non-used cut stash.  In other words, I have no idea what cart it's from.  lol

Once put together I turned this into a birthday card.  The inside sentiment says, "It's your day and I hope it's as special as you.  Happy Birthday!"
