Wherefore Art Thou Gnomeo?

Hi There!
It's Thursday and that means I'm back with another fun card using a brand new Deconstructed Sketch for the week!

For this week's sketch, I decided to think outside the box just a bit. One of the things that I'm loving about being part of this new sketch blog, is that it's giving me the opportunity to get inky with stamps that I've had for a while but haven't had the chance to use yet! So, I already had in mind that I wanted to use this super cute gnome named Nimbert, from Pink Cat Studio and then when I saw the sketch, I decided that I wanted to play with the panels a bit, in order to create a scene for the little guy.

I used October Afternoon Campfire papers, as well as a few additional accents from K&Co and PTI. Since the bottom of the sketch called for a border trim, I went with my Martha Stewart grass punch. And then to wrap it all up, I used Martha Stewart Craft String, that mostly got covered up by the tree, and did a bit of hand stitching too for added bordering and dimension.

Be sure and check out what the Sketch Girls have created for your inspiration today! We hope you'll play along with us!
