Today, I spotted that the challenge over at ABC Christmas was U for Unusual Christmas colours.
Just Us Girls has a CAS challenge this week which is just up my street!

Here is a gnome by Simon Says Stamp and I used non-traditional colours…. Lime green and deep teal. I think that die-cutting is a good way of using up the backing papers that I no longer use as layers. The noel is by Clearly Besotted and the G from Papertrey ink. The snow background embossing is by Sheena Douglass but sadly is no longer available. 

His beard has been gently shaded with alcohol markers.

If GNOME can be spelled with a G, why not GNOEL?



  1. The colours are a refreshing change and go really well Chrissie, and the design with the fun sentiment and the oval with the background falling snow is just perfect...a beautiful card! x
