Me and the Mushrooms Again!

What is with me and the mushrooms? I didn't even know I liked them?!?! Thanks to my friend Tammy for these images!

Anyway, here's a card for sketch challenge SC213. I intend to use this as a birthday card and write "have a wonderful birthday" inside.

First I cut that rectangle out of the center but left it in position (cut then ink technique). I stamped the tree and masked it off. Then I used torn paper masks to mark off the areas while I sponged the grass, tree, and sky. You know I have been using the same torn pieces of paper for months! It's kinda my lucky piece now! HA! I then stamped the leaves in the tree and grass onto the ground (looks like I should have gave the green a minute to dry before I stamped on it again....they kinda melted together. When all the background was done, I cut out the slice at the top and bottom. I then adhered all the pieces to my card base. Alice and my beloved mushrooms were colored my usual way, cut out, and glued into position.
