One of the adorable new sets available from Paper Nest Dolls is the Gnome Set

I've decided to use 3 of the images from the set to make an Anniversary card for a young couple in our family, who LOVE gardening.

I've used the boy gnome, the girl gnome and the tulips., and added in a bit of a background for them.  I've coloured the entire image with markers, and used a Poppy Crafts stitched border die to cut it out.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Buttons and Blooms collection.  I've added a piece of cheesecloth behind the image and two heart cluster laser cuts, but Scrapaholics, which I've sprayed with white Gesso.

My flowers are Green Tara.  They have such a lovely variety of little flowers.  The gardening gloves and tools are Little B.  

There are more images in this sweet new set, so be sure to pop over to the store to see them.

Thanks for popping over for a visit today!

  1. Linda this is gorgeous. Just love your coloring. The cheesecloth is perfect with this image. LOTS of great details. Your Anniversary card will be appreciated. Thanks for the invite to join the Penny's DT, which is a site that I enjoy participating in. I have a full time job as a nurse which I have to have to pay the mortgage and health insurance since my darn cat is lazy and won't cook and clean. Still waiting for that fairytale where that happens. My husband passed away six years ago, so I have to do my yard work and all since my adult children don't live near me. I wish that I could afford to stay home and craft and when that day happens....I will look to add another DT since I already am on three, lol. Seriously I am honored. I just don't have enough hours to commit, but thanks so much for considering me.
