Be happy!

6/15/20 Winner at Pammie’s Inky Pinkies Challenges!

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good week! Our new challenge is live over at Southern Girls Challenge and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! As always, the theme for our challenge is Anything Goes and we’d love to see what you create! Our sponsors this time are Three Button Studio, The Paper Shelter and Beccy’s Place. I was provided the super cool Neville image and a sentiment from the Gnomes in my Garden digital set. OMG, isn’t he just the cutest ever?! If I wasn’t married and Neville was a real-life dude, I’d be in love! ;)


I angled the corners of the card base and went with a warm color palette, layering the background paper and front (computer-generated) sentiment on charcoal cardstock. I colored Neville in rich red, yellow and browns, and layered a total of four fussy cuts of him on top of one another for some dimension. I had to give some life to my guy, lol! ;) I finished off the front with some pewter sequins.


I printed the sentiment that came with the image, trimmed the panel and embellished it with paper and cardstock used on the front.


And one more peek… OMG, I AM so in love! What an awesome image and sentiment. I might have to buy Beccy’s gnome set because the other gnomes are pretty awesome too! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
