Let's Celebrate

Happy Sunday everyone. I have a new card I made for my husbands birthday and a couple of challenges. The gnome image is by MelonHeadz and I colored him in with Copic markers. I'm not really very good with shading but I like to color when I have free time and want to relax for a bit. I Googled gnome images and this one was the best for the marker colors that I own. 

Once I colored him in I die cut him and the next size rectangle out with my Spellbinders dies.  The sequins are recycled from an old dance costume and the stars, Recollections cardstock, is a die cut by Quickutz/Life Style Crafts/We R Memory Keepers. The sentiment is by Paper Smooches. I stamped it with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with red Ranger embossing powder. 

For my background paper I took some white Studio G cardstock and rubbed Dizzy powdered chalk by Stamp N Plus over it with a cosmetic wedge. I was going to dry emboss the cardstock but thought it looked great as is. 

Thanks for taking a look and stopping by today.
