GS63 Wplus9 - Miss you Mushrooms

It is finally raining around here - they said on the news that we are 6" behind schedule for the year.  However, even if mushrooms decided to pop up in our yard they would be hidden by the enormous amount of leaves (wet leaves) that cover our backyard!  Won't the boys be excited when I tell them that this weekend's project is to move all the leaves from the backyard to the front curb?  sigh. . .
Anyhoo - this card is based on the Wplus9 Color Cue and Get Sketchy #63 challenges pictured above.  I like the colors of kraft and white more than I do red and purple but I managed to get them all in there!
The mushroom pic came from The Graphics Fairy (TIP - when you print out pics/graphics, print out an entire page worth - that way you have some pics that you love ready when you need some quick inspiration).  Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type, May Arts silk ribbon, Zva pearls and Tim Holtz Texture Fade folder.

Michelle! This is positively GORGEOUS! I LOVE the texture and surprising use of COLOR! I swear, I smell fresh raindrops and suddenly, I feel like making a salad with fresh mushrooms! That's what makes color SO wonderful! Thanks for sharing this with W9's Color Cue!
