WWC 308 - Tristan's Challenge: All About Occasions

 Hi there.  Time for another challenge at Watercooler Wednesday.  Our hostess is Tristan and her challenge is "All About Occasions"

Today I'm sharing a sweet little card I send my grandson.  It's a just for fun occasion -

I had a scrap of folded card that was longer at the back than the front so added some patterned paper to the bottom to make this little 3 1/2" x 6 3/4" card.  I added some washi tape where the patterned paper was added.  I used a Whimsy stamp set "Gnome Birthday" set to make my little gnome and add the sentiment.  My gnome was coloured with Jasart Pencils and then fussy cut him out.  Before I added him to my card I used a blending brush that I hadn't cleaned - that had some Altenew Parrot ink on it - and a Catherine Pooler stencil (Turkish Delight) to add the lightest of colour to the background.

I'm entering this into the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp - Make a slimline card. 

Archie was feeling a little sad the other week as Perth went into Lockdown on the 31st January for 5 days and he didn't get to head to his first day of Primary school on the 1st.  He was so looking forward to it.   So hopefully getting this card will cheer him up. 

Come and join in the fun at  Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and check out the project from the other designers.  Then take our challenge and link up your project to the challenge post.    We'd love to have you join us.  You have until Monday at 5 pm Mountain Standard Time (Tuesday at 11.00 am NZ time ) to link up your project.
