Sketch Challenge - Gnome Sweet Gnome

Good evening friends!  We had another fun weekend and I was able to spend several hours each day in studio and was a valentine making fool (the hearts and glitter were flying!)  I managed to take a break from valentines to make this weeks Stamping 411 sketch card and since it was Sunday and we were getting ready to head over to friends to watch the SuperBowl I decided that the perfect stamp was the Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set  since I was "hangin' with my gnomies!"

The color combination is from the Everyday Enchantment DSP that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration (love it!)  The card base is Pool Party and I used Calypso Coral behind the strip of DSP that I punched out with the Scallop Border punch.  The ribbon is Pool Party ruffled ribbon, which is so fun and flirty.  The lucky limeade cardstock behind the image was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder and then the edges were distressed with the distressing tool.

The main stamped image was stamped in Basic black and colored in with Stampin' Write markers.  The grass was stamped with Lucky Limeade ink and the rock in Basic Gray.  The greeting is from the Gnomenclature stamp set and was punched out with the word window punch and matted with the modern label punch (it's also popped up with dimensionals).

This card  turned out soo cute and Aidan thought it was really funny so I definately count this as a success.

Hope you enjoyed!
