A Happy Gnome

Hi everyone.  Today I’m back with a little card to share for my Make the Day Special card this week.  Natasha always moans at me when I use blue and orange together, she thinks they are awful colours!!  She screws her nose up and says those two colours shouldn’t be seen together!!
I made this card for my little eleven year old friend, well actually she’s Natasha’s best friend, but she’s a very special girl.  For our wedding she gave us this adorable little gnome for the garden, isn’t he the cutest?!!!
I’m sending this off to her in the post today, hope it makes her smile (and that she likes blue and orange together lol)

I used the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge inspiration pic
and the sketch from Card Patterns..

For all you Copic lovers these are the colours I used…
I used the following Paper Smooches stamp sets.. Pretty Phrases, Forest Whimsy and Whimsical.  Papers used were MME Honey Bee.

This happy gnome really needs a name so I thought I’d do a little giveaway of a few of my unloved crafty items that need to go to a good home.  Leave me a comment with a fun name for my gnome and I will send a parcel to the winner.  I will draw a winner in two weeks’ time.  Put your thinking hats on!!
