I loved the color palette and sweet little polka dots ... and it gave me an excuse to ink-up my new Gnome Sweet Gnome set from Lawn Fawn. I started with a piece of Hello Luscious paper from Basic Grey (I love stamping on their distressed solid designs).
I stamped grass repeatedly along the bottom in Sour Apple Chalk ink creating a little hill on which to perch my mushroom home. The musroom was stamped on red textured cardstock with white pencil used for the mushroom dots like the big polka dots in the inspiration dress.
My litlte Gnomie was stamped in India ink on white cardstock with a paper pieced hat and colored pencils on the rest. I finished with lots of tiny little paper pieced flowers & some MFT die cut clouds in the sky (using foam tape on my gnome, mushroom and cloud for dimension).

That was a fun site this morning, thank you - and some wonderfully sweet and cute cards that it's inspired. Those tiny pieced flowers must have been so fiddly to cut out :D, but what's a gnome home without a garden!
