There's 'gnome' time like the present . . .

 . . . to make you smile with this fun Birthday creation!

Good afternoon friends!

I'm late getting a card created to share with you today but with the help of the new challenge over on the CAS Colours & Sketches Double Challenge, I finally was able to pull a card together.


 I love a sketch to get my creative juices flowing and this was PERFECT!!

For the life of me, I can not remember where I found this (and a couple other) digital gnomes.  And, I can't find them in my files ... hmmm (old age creeping in lol).  Anyways, I think he's adorable and I hope you do too.  

I've used Tutti Designs 'Scallop Stitched Nesting Circles' for my Marina Mist layer and added faux stitching to the Tempting Turquoise panel using a white gelly roll pen.

 TUTTI-419 Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles

 I'm sure this card will help to brighten someone's birthday!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a FABULOUS day!
