The Four Seasons Challenge - November Gnomie

Hello Friends and Happy 1st Day of November!  Today begins a new challenge month at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog and it's the last month of Autumn themed Mood Boards; next month we move into Winter themes.

I received a packet of decoupage sheets in a Card Swap last year and while looking for something from my stash to create this month's project, I came across them. I loved the Gnomes, they are so adorable and I especially love the Starbucks-like drink this Gnomie Girl is holding.  

To start, I've embossed a panel using a Autumn leaves folder from Darice and die cut an oval from the center.  I've ink blended the cut out with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and splattered with water and white acrylic gloss spray.  

I've fussy cut the decoupage image and sentiment, then adhered all to a brown mat.  Before adhereing to the card base, I've wrapped Baker's Twine and tied a bow.  To finish the card, I placed gold gems and called this card done.

Please stop by the challenge blog and join in.  We love seeing how the monthly Mood board inspires everyone and my team mates have created some lovely projects that will surely inspire you as well.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
