Happy Birthday Gnome

Happy Sunday, all! Hope you are enjoying the weekend in your corner of the world. =) I have a card made using one of the adorable gnomes from Whiff of Joy's March release to share with you today.


I think this is a little busier than what I usually made. It took me a little while to get used to it and still am not so sure about it...


I used the lovely Happy Birthday Gnome for this card. How can you not love those adorable gnomes? =) They are so fun and quick to color. I made a background for him using patterned paper cut using Petite Ovals Large and Petite Ovals Small dies.


The patterned paper is from the Fine And Dandy True Blue collection by My Mind's Eye. The PennantsFancy Heart border die and Desert Sand button twine are from WOJ and the sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

That's all for today. Hope you have a wonderful day!



Thanks for stopping by!
