Swinging Gnomes

Hi there 🙂 Time for another Christmas creation. Even though I’ve been making a concerted effort to get Christmas cards done lately, I am still so far behind, and will likely be scrambling as the holidays approach!! Lol…seems to be the same story every year. I colored up these adorable gnomes from Star Jam Lines, but when I went to add a link, I see the Etsy Store is closed, and the Facebook group hasn’t been active for quite some time 🙁 I had the paper picked out before coloring, so colored these guys up in pink and gold tones to match the paper. I added some “sparkle” with white Posca for a bit of fun.

After matting things up with a shimmery gold, I die cut the ornaments from the same gold paper, then inlaid the actual ornaments with some shiny pink off cuts. A simple banner with a sentiment finishes this fun, non traditional card off.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
