Little Gnomes

     Beccy's Place has a fabulous (and optional!) "Flip a Coin" board on their challenge this month.  The theme is always Anything Goes with a Beccy's image but the optional board made the challenge that much more fun.  :-D

     I used two of Beccy's gnomes, merged before printing (which wasn't all that easy because they are jpg files, not png files!)


(Decorated envelope)

Here's the board and a list of those I used:

1.  Blues, purples, greens
2.  Square card
3. Ribbon or Lace
4. Something shiny
5.  Decorate the envelope

Colored w/ ProMarkers
Glossy Accents added to lantern glow (for the shine)
Cut with QuicKutz lg square die
Corners done w/ Fiskars punch
Striped paper from DCWV
Lacy mesh ribbon
Dot embellies made w/ dots punched from corners
Envelope liner and decoration made w/ same dp

     Challenges:
Allsorts
Aud Sentiments
Cardz TV
Carlin's Card Paradise
Colour Crazy
Creative Fingers
Cute Card Thurs
Outlawz Festive Fri
Stamping Sensations

     Thanks so much for stopping by to visit.  I appreciate all who leave comments of encouragement and who follow my blog.  In these times when we can't physically reach out to friends and family IRL, having contact from blogging and crafting friends makes the days feel brighter and cheerier.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Great card NanaConnie, your card is fabulous! Well done on using the flip-a-coin challenge too, it's a fun way to create something a bit different. I love how you've coloured the lantern light, it's lovely and bright. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy
