Christmas Card Throwdown June Theme Challenge -- Gnomes

I can't believe how much I struggled with the theme this week at Christmas Card Throwdown -- GNOMES.  I have lots of gnomes but I just keep drawing a blank.  I had started with a pair of Scandinavian gnomes from Hero Arts, trying to build a mosaic...didn't work.  So I moved to a gnome from Paper Smooches...nope, didn't like the outcome.  Finally I settled on this small gnome from Simon Says Stamp. Since I wanted to use the Reverse Confetti sentiment and Memory Box bells,  I decided a slim line card might be appropriate.  I die cut the pieces for the three small gnomes, assembling all on a patterned paper backdrop.

Your gnomes are adorable and I love the slimline design, cute bells too! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

What a great card and I am sorry that you had such struggles with getting the Gnomes for my theme challenge to behave. I am glad that you shared with us what you were able to make. I hope that you will join us again in the future.
