OTWC #49

It's been 2 weeks since posting for Off The Wall Craftiness challenge.  Did it seem strange to you?  The bi-weekly challenges, I mean?  I think it gives more people the opportunity to play along!  Well, this week is sponsored by Wilson Designs and the DT got busy and used the latest stamp set in the WD lineup:  Gnomebody Like You.  Take a look at the inspiration photo below!



I decided to again use the gnomes for a CAS card.  It is so fun to create little scenes with this set!!!  It is also so much fun to paper piece these little gnomes!  Here I used some Green Tea Leaves DP from PTI. 


 
I thought the card was just missing something and I figured, "hey, I can draw some stems for flowers."  Then I used the tiny little flower from the set to top them off.  What do you think? 

That's it from me today.......please remember to check out the other DT blogs on my sidebar and leave them a comment or two!  I know they sure appreciate it!  Remember this challenge ends in 2 weeks over on Kim's blog..........Off The Wall Craftiness.  Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the warm weather if you are receiving some!!!

So super cute! I love the sun you made, it looks so good with that embossing. And the gnome looks great paper pieced. :)

Very cute! Great job paper-piecing the dress. Love the technique on the sun. Very smart of you to add stems and the flower. I had to take a closer look because your stems look like they're part of the stamp. Great card!

She's ADORABLE!!!! We took my dd to see her 1st movie in the theater last month and it was Gnomeo and Juliet, so I'm especially partial :) The treatment on that sun is SPECTACULAR!!

Jen said...

Oh my gossssshhhhh! This is crazy cute! I don't think I've ever seen a gnome as fab as this. Look at her in the little haute couture gnome suit, bow and all. Definitely not standard issue. Just gorgeous Amy.
