A Fallish Mushroom

Here's another card I made during my "fun" labor Labor Day crafting time. I hope you guys aren't getting tired of all my layered cards cause this is another one. This cute little mushroom image is a free digi I found on a blog called Steady On. I layered the mushroom, butterflies, and flowers. I added a little real and a little faux stitching to this card. The coloring was done with Prisma colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I chalked around the image and there's even a little Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the distressed kraft cardstock. I hit twelve layers with this card. LOL
Here are the challenges I'm entering it into:

Pile It On--layers
Paper Sundaes--two different coloring mediums
Friday Sketchers--sketch #118
Paper Play Challenges--hand, machine or faux stitching
Just Inspirational Challenges--digi image
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge--distress it

Paper: Recollections cardstock, Making Memories
Stamp: digital image from Steady On blog, Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages
Inks+: Prisma colored pencils, Gemini Masterpiece Odorless Mineral Spirits, Inkadinkado Blending Chalks, Vintage Photo Distress ink, Sakura brown Micron pen
Tools: Nestabilities Classic Squares Large (S4-126); Heidi Swapp edge distresser tool

And now that the challenge between us for the most MS punches is over, I believe the next challenge MUST be layers. (I count them all all all the time...) I have never done this many, but I believe there is a Papercraft Star challenge coming up that will work and I will take on the 12 layers... hahahahehehehe (man, that did not even look evil at all did it)
