Sweet November "Shroom" Gal - I Won It!



Hello fellow crafters!  Hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for the weekend.  I am so embarassed about today's post because it is LOOOOOONNNNNGGGG overdue!  Back in February, I won this darlin' image called "Shroom" from Amy Young's (A Thousand Sheets of Paper) Sweet November Collection.  Amy also sent me the card she created and let me tell you, her coloring is so awesome!  I was over the moon excited to be able to actually hold it in my hands one of her many gorgeous creations! She is just the sweetest and most talented young lady out there.  Her creations are just so fun and her coloring and techniques are awesome.  I've learned alot through her video tutorials on "Color Me Copic."  So, on to my card that I created and completely forgot to post as I went through a "dry spell" and was MIA trying to find my mojo.  
I used a MS border punch to create the side borders on the card base.  All cardstock by Bazzill.  I found these two DPs with mushrooms on them and couldn't decide which to use so I used them both.  I stamped "Shroom" on cryogen white CS and colored her with Copics, cut her out, and added a small pink bling for her earring.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps (Ticket Notes) and placed on the matching Fancy Ticket die.  It's hard to see, but I added some stickles on the dots on Shroom's "cap."  Small flowers from my stash
I kept the inside very simple and carried through the same layout as the front, only this time, I used the mushroom border as a pocket for my note to tuck inside:
A very clean an simple card.  I hope Amy likes this card.  I think I was more nervous coloring "Shroom" after seeing Amy's gorgeous coloring!  It's like I needed the "teacher's approval!."  LOL!  But she was fun and fast to color and I enjoyed  playing with her.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AMY!  Amy's Sweet November stamps are sold through All That Scraps so head on over and see the rest of Amy's  fun stamps!

Card Recipe:
Stamp:  Sweet November "Shroom,"; Whimsy (Ticket Notes)
CS:  Bazzill (white and pink)
DP:  Three Bugs In a Rug (Lazy Summer/Mushrooms), and Doodlebug (Over the Rainbow)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by today.  Enjoy your weekend, and happy crafting!

Warm Aloha Hugs,

She is darling, I love how she is peaking from her mushroom hat, so innocent. Your coloring is so perfect it blends with the DP you used, very pretty. I love Whimsy sentiments too, yours looks like a butterfly along the edges. Your card is gorgeous and cheery just like the sentiment.

As always, awesome job with the copic coloring, and I love all the embellishments and how you matched Shroom with the cute patterned papers. That fancy ticket die is neat!
