Dancing in the moonlight

Oh wow, what a wonderful golden day yesterday. I saw the girls row to victory, and what a race it was, they demolished the rest. I had to go to work before Bradley  got his gold but managed to catch up late last night. Lets not forget the silver and bronze medals too. It's a good job I have a few cards in hand because I am glued to the Olympics at the moment :o)
Anyhow, I digress. My card for today is just something I was playing with and this is the result. Not sure it's quite what I was thinking of but HeyHo my cards rarely are!


I cut and folded white hammered card to 6x6.
The background was created using cotton wool balls and TH distress inks, then I used a white punched circle dabbed with orange, for the moon, and various stamps with black Memento inkpad  to create the scene. The larger mushrooms and the couple were cut on the Cricut using Penny Duncan SVG files.
Right, time to watch the Olympics now :o)

Such a lovely card Jackie - was jumping up and down yesterday watching the rowing!! Feel sorry for Chris Froome - he got a great medal but everyone's hailing Bradley and forgetting about him!
