Card with Tiny Toadstools by Tim Holtz


Hello everyone,

I'm here with my second inspirational project for our September challenge.

The theme is Season if mists and mellow fruitfulness.

So I created a card with toadstools for whom the autumn is their true season.

The background with the falling leaves and the orange colour is autumn-like too. 

If you need a tutorial, please hop on my blog.
