Happy Birthday Gnome

It is the 15th of the month and normally you would see a post with my card for the Creative Card Ladies.  There have been some issues this month with the mail and receiving the kits, so we are delaying the posting until next Saturday.  So--be sure to check back on the 22nd to see my card.

But for today, here is another card for my new monthly challenge for 2021--At Home With Gnomes. Each month I will create a card using one of my many gnome images. 

For this card, I picked a new-to-me stamp from Unity Stamps called Happy Birthday Gnome. Isn't this a sweet gnome?  I colored this cute image with my Copic Sketch Markers. I wanted to use two of the sentiments from the same set, so I thought a mini-slimline card would be a perfect fit.  The mini-slim card base is from Taylored Expressions.  I added a few bright green enamel dots for the final touch!  AND--there is some Glossy Accents on the balloon for the shine!

Here is the inside of my card, with a strip of washi tape

I am sure I have more than enough gnome images to use a different one each month.  I will be back in June and will show you another gnome, so stay tuned!
