Gnome Card- Peachy Keen Challenge

Hey everyone!  I have been wanting to enter a Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday challenge for a while now.  I am going to enter this one in the challenge (I'm so excited)!  To see the challenge, click here: http://peachykeenstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/05/lets-face-it-friday-designers-choice.html.  I had the idea of making a card that somehow incorporated a gnome.  So I sat down with my Gypsy and started playing around with some different gnomes.  This is what I came up with, and I really love the way it turned out!!! :)

* I am now going to enter this into another challenge, which is on Bitten by the Bug 2, create something with a gnome!  I love gnomes and I love this card, so I am going to give my card another chance!  I looked at their website for rules about back linking to an older post (this post is only a week old) and it didn't say anything, so here it goes!!!

Freshly Picked- <gnome2> & <gnome3> cut at 4.06", mushrooms cut at 1.24"

Cuttlebug: Flowers 5 x 7 folder for blue background, Swiss Dots folder for red pieces
Peachy Keen Stamps: Everyday Character Face Assortment (I used the 5/8" faces)
Sentiment was done on my computer with "Segoe Script" font at size 28
