KWerner Challenge #47 - Tulips???

It's time for another Kristina Werner Challenge.....

No, not tulips or flowers for this post...how about mushrooms instead. Granted the mushrooms are actually the top part of the tulips from the Wishing You set from PTI paired with stems. Last night at the PTI bloghop I found out you could make mushrooms with this set, then tonight I saw this color combo, and I knew I had to give the tulip mushrooms a try. Instead of using a smaller tulip top for the base of the mushroom (blog entry here) I hand cut stems from cardstock.
The color combo and my card reminds of these ceramic canisters my mom used to own when I was a kid. They were yellow with a white rim on the lid and base and a few mushrooms for handles...so in the avocado, gold, and orange era of the 70's/80's. This color combo was too fun!!!! I had so much fun I decided I needed to decorate the inside of the card with mushrooms too. Let me know what you think!
