Woodland Mushrooms...

UNDER a toadstool crept a wee Elf, Out of the rain to shelter himself. Under the toadstool, sound asleep, Sat a big Dormouse all in a heap. Oliver Herford This week's Woodware USA Challenge is to make a one layer card. You can join in and play along - there is even a chance for a monthly prize if you do!

Here are the rules:
1. Create a one layer card for an entry in our monthly drawing. If you use a Woodware USA stamp in your creation, you will receive an additional entry but you don't have to use a WoodwareUSA stamp.
2. Link up the post with the card to our In-linkz system. SCS gallery users put WoodwareUSA as one of your keywords in addition to linking up your card.
3. You have until 8:00pm EST Sunday before the next challenge to enter.
