Card Chain Challenge Reveal for October's Exchange

 Below are the challenge themes for the October challenge.  You can sign up for the November Challenge at Card Chain Challenge, so be sure to check out the challenge for November.

I received this die mid-September and I cut lots of the dies and put them in little baggies so I could create without pulling out the Vagabond & dies again.  I used Vintage Photo distress ink to bring out the gills under the mushroom cap.  Since I chose "friendship" for my challenge, I added a "friend" die-cut.  I think this could also be a cute card for a close friend who just needs a note to cheer them up.  My door does not open and I could have used a lighter door, but I rather liked the dark door matching the window frame next to it.

I do love your mushroom, it doesn't matter what colour the door is, it looks really inviting xx

This is absolutely charming and I think the dark colored door is perfect. I agree that it coordinates so well with the window frame, and the sentiment too. Your recipient is going to LOVE this!
