Hi everyone! It’s Saturday and I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I’ve popped in this morning to share a super cute card I made to enter into the March Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge. I’ve been so busy this month that I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to fit this project in… but here I am with three days to spare, lol! Everyone joining in the challenge receives a free sponsor digi to create with each month. SheepSki Designs is our awesome sponsor this month and we’re playing with the cutest digi stamp ever… Giant Mushroom! OMG, cuteness overload! You ought to check out The Outlawz Challenges – lots of challenges to enter and lots of fun going on!
I am so in love with all the gnomes being showcased around blogland these days, and this SheepSki Designs digi is the first one I’ve ever worked with. It’s so stinkin’ adorable, I can’t stand it! I created a clean but rustic-looking square card base. I cut the image with a dotted squares die and then layered it on a red slightly larger dotted squares die cut. The front and inside sentiments are computer-generated.
I embellished the inside panel with a wide strip of the red cardstock used on the front, and then layered the panel on the same red cardstock.
One more peek… loving how this turned out! Not bad for my first Gnomie attempt, lol!
