Craftmad - Pink Challenge - Day two

Hi everyone, a better late than never post. 
First day back to school for our kids....last term of the year - 8 weeks.
So our routine is a little different this morning.  After then left I left to go and help my brother and sister-in-law clean there new home they are moving into.  Yes, sadly the previous owners seem to have just up and left so we are cleaning off kids finger prints and daddly long legs out of the cupboards.
Other than that their new home is just amazing and although much bigger than where they were they will fill this very nicely.

This leads me to my card today.  I was looking through my digital stamps and spied a couple that I have not had the chance to use.  There were three mushrooms and I thought these would be brilliant from my two nieces and nephew as they move into their new house.  I thought it would be fun for them to see that the mailman found where they lived.

So I started with this fantastic mushroom image from The Paper Shelter.  Coloured it with my copic pens. I so have to remember if I start with shadow on one side it should always be on that side. lol
I have made a 'Spring Card' to be part of the wonderful new challenge happening over at Craftmad.
This challenge is a lead up to the Girls Night In Chat and Create night 21st October which is helping to raise funds for Breast Cancer.  This is a daily 'Pink' challenge.  The lovely Kerry is posting a new challenge every day of October.  Luckily, we do not have to post every day but should have all we have done in the appropriate album by 3rd November.  The challenge is to see who can do the most.

So this is the Day two daily 'Pink' challenge which was to create a Spring Card.
I started with Pink Bazzill card and added some lovely Pink glitter paper to the base.
Layered the top up with a bright green and pretty patterned paper I have had forever but love.
The sentiment is printed off the computer.

I would love to enter into the following challenges:
