Many of my friends and family have January birthdays. This week is particularly a festive week. My friend, Cinda, will celebrate her birthday tomorrow and my friend, Phyllis, will be celebrating on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, I’ll be having my birthday. I see lots of cake in my future. lol I used the Gnome Sweet Gnome set to create a fun birthday card. I know some people find gnomes creepy (kind of like how I feel about clowns,) but ever since Travelocity had the “Roaming Gnome” commercials, I fell in love with them. The image I used on this card is my favorite from the set because it has the cute little frog too!
I used watercolor paper and colored in my gnome with ink pads and my AquaPainter. I stamped some flowers from the Itty Bitty Bits and then added some Dazzling Details to add some sparkle. (Those sparkle dots look MUCH better in person. I realized when I looked at the photo that they sort of resembled warts instead of sparkle. lol)
