Toadally Wonderful Day!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Wouldn't you know it...DRS Designs has a new, super cute little Toadstool House. I just had to put it front and center and back it with a bunch of other toadstools. And I just had to color them all in my favorite "toadstool" colors. I dunno...these funky colors just do it for me on these toadstools. Can't seem to picture them in any other colors. I guess it helps that I'm not particularly bothered by creating absolutely realistic colors for things. Now and then, it's good to color any way you want. Just call it artistic license, if anyone asks, lol.

For the background, the Toadstools were stamped repeatedly, masking along the way. The greeting was split in order to better fit the layout. The little toadstool house was die cut w/ a circle die, matted with a larger rust circle and and lacy seville buckle die was added behind it. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
