Just mushrooms....

Hi! So many challenges and so little time! I would love to have more hours to make more cards:)
This time I have a new card to show you, that I made using the Mojo Monday Sketch. I also did my best effort to include the requirements of other challenges on it.

I drew these Mushrooms especially for the Stampartic Challenge, which asks for mushrooms on the card. It was very funny, I love them! I printed the drawing several times to give my card a 3D effect. In fact, the mushrooms and the butterfly have two layers and the ladybug have three layers. She looks great with crystal effect. I included a butterfly because I really like them and I think are good as embellishment. Once I painted it I added a thin layer of glitter to give it a subtle shimmer effect.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
