Gnome for Christmas


 A thoughtful friend gifted me with this adorable Simon Says Stamp gnome die and a great Kringle & Co paper pad for Christmas, and I just can't stop playing with it! I chose 2 of the papers for the background, adding a cherry cobbler panel that was done with a SU! Scalloped edge border punch. The gnome was "dressed" with 2 little snippets from the paper pad, and placed on a Lawn Fawn die-cut tag, adding the stamped sentiment on the side and coloring his nose with a Copic marker. I added a piece of sparkly silver ribbon to the top and called this one done!

I'll enter it into the following challenges:
