Funky 4 SAB card

SAB (Sale-A-Bration) is the time to pick up FREE stuff!
This is the Funky 4 set, which I delayed getting and just
received as an SAB set.  It is just a cute, simple set.

I stamped the mushrooms, used Tombo to glue them
to the not quite navy card stock base and then ran
it through the textile embossing folder.
Added a bow and a sentiment from Sassy Pants
punched out with the extra large Label punch and 
good to go!
