MFT, NBUS, and a Gnome on a Mission

I can't get enough of these gnomes!  I can't even tell you why I'm so drawn to them.  I don't have any in my garden, or ANY ornaments for that matter, but I just love these guys and the entire stamp set!  This gnome is on a mission to wish a dear friend, "Happy Birthday!"
The front panel was cut using Die-namics Birthday Centerpieces and popped up with foam tape.  I colored the gnome from MFT's BB You Gnome Me with Copics.  The flowers by the banner sentiment are cut from the boot image in the same set, and the little flowers behind the gnome are from the MFT's BB Somebunny stamp set.  The background was created by masking and sponging DI Mowed Lawn and Mermaid Lagoon.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white on PTI Pure Poppy cs, and everything was matted on PTI Summer Sunrise cs.  A white Gelly Roll pen helped accent his hat and the flower centers.

It's a little dark, but I thought I'd show you the dimension up close:
I'd like to enter this card into MFT's Card Design Superstar Card Contest
  Card Design Superstar
 
What an fun opportunity from My Favorite Things!  It's amazing to see all of the talent already linked up over there! 
 
It's also going to go play over in Darnell's Playhouse, because who could pass up a chance to get inside the cutest crafting space ever!  It's NBUS Challenge #5, and my, has her following grown!  I've used this gnome before, but the Die-namics Birthday Centerpieces is making its NBUS debut.
Thanks ever so much for coming over to visit today.  We have two more moves to make, my in-laws this weekend, and my aunt & uncle next week.  After that. Lord willing, I will be more consistent with blogging and commenting!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
