Believe it or not but there is an element of planning to my Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team cards. Obviously I get to know about the themes in advance, which gives me the opportunity to think about my projects and to seek out appropriate images to use on any cards I decide to make. I also give a little bit of thought to the order I am going to publish my projects in. Originally I had planned to publish this card first, hence the title of this post, but then I changed the order. I thought about changing the title to 'For a Fungi', but better taste prevailed.
A couple of weeks before this challenge I was discussing the theme with my teamie Lisette (aka Mrs Beez) and I commented that most people seemed to associate leaves with autumn and it would be nice to get away from the leaf motif. I joked that it would be nice to find a fungus image. Later that evening I went on the hunt and was delighted when I found this polymer stamp on Ebay, it was exactly what I had in mind.
