This card was originally for the teapot challenge, and then, I looked at the sketch and alphabet challenges and was able to include all three on one card. Yay!
I used an embossed background that one of my lovely SCS friends sent to me with my birthday card! I think it was Karen. Thank you!
I stamped, watercolored and fussy cut out my little gnome, adding a sentiment and ribbons to my card! Fun and easy! I hope Carol enjoys all the pink and, since she's a hairdresser, I'm sure she'll appreciate those long braids!

And since I'm a hairdresser, I'd like to cut some of that hair so she won't trip on it.....Cute use of the pinks and such a pretty embossed bg to make your little gnome girl shine! Love the pink ribbon, Gracie~

Cute! I am in agreement with others here and quite concerned about this little gnome's safety. Between the long hair, long robe and hat pulled over her eyes, it's a wonder she is still standing and in one piece. Great card!

I went Yay! with you and ooh I have to go shopping for that EF. You can imagine my disappointment when I saw it was gifted to you so you didn't have the name in the list of supplies. LOL. But thank you for sharing it with Carol as it looks perfect for a girly bg for that sweet gnome. Love the pink with her reddish tresses. And how clever to use pink ribbon, but not in the traditional loop we associate with breast cancer. Great idea. Wonderfully sweet card. I'm sure Carol will enjoy it and especially that gnomie's fun braids.

I've been going to buy a Gnome stamp for so long and every time I shop for one, they are out of stock. So I have been saved from myself, but then I see another fun Gnomie card and I want one all over again. Love her pink and that red hair!
