Little Red Toadstools...

There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations. -Washington Irving


Today is my very first Guest Designer Post for EtsyInspired! I have been playing along with the challenge for months and I Just LOVE the shops they find to inspire us! This week it is The cutest store on Etsy: Muffa. Handmade micro miniature animals, thread crocheted bears, gnomes, and fairies. And mean MICRO--they are the teeniest things!! SO Super Sweet!
Muffa has offered up a prize to one of our players! A Super cute little mini Goldfish! :)


Our sponsor this week is Dude Time Doodle Store. Dude Time Doodle Store is offering a prize package to one winner that includes the following month's never before seen NEW RELEASES! Our winner will get these images before anyone else! This new release will include 4-8 brand new images! WOW! And don't forget to check out their blog, HERE. **NOTE:: The Dude Time Doodle Store website is underconstruction--please visit their blog for more information and to check out these super awesome images!

And now to my card...I was inspired by the toadstools on this Adorable Gnome Globe



I made another one layer Fabriano Card with my Woodware USA Woodland Mushrooms...

Supplies:
Stamps: Woodland Mushrooms, Jane's Script (Woodware USA,)
Paper: Fabriano
Ink: Memento Black, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Marigold Morning, Soft Sky (SU)
Misc: Stickles, Waterbrush
