Birthday card

This is the card I made for Tony's birthday tomorrow. He loves garden gnomes but I won't let him put any in our garden so I thought I would stitch him one instead.
The pattern was one I bought from Stitching Cards and I stitched him in various colours of metallic thread. After I had mounted him on toning cards and paper I thought he looked a bit bland so I coloured him with chalks and added some toning black and blue ribbons. Hope he likes him!


  1. Oh he turned out so cute! I love that pattern!

  2. so very cute, have a fantastic week, I am offering blog give away, check it out if you have time!

    enjoy *~*

  3. for shame ;)
    every garden should have its gnome
    but this one is awfully cute so I'm sure that counts. I'm going to have to try the stitching one of these days. You did a wonderful job.
