walking in a winter wonderland (in july) challenge

so, i finally decided on a layout for my card for the new pixie dust challenge (challenge 33): walking in a winter wonderland color challenge. the challenge was to use a holiday theme with the colors navy, grey/silver, and white/ivory.

how could i resist using this super cute holiday gnome again?? i really love gnomes (he he), as you may know, so i just went for it. i added the gnomes house (aka the mushroom).

again, i paper pieced the mushroom (it's easier and looks better than when i attempt to color it in! if i just color the digi stamps, it looks like a 2nd grader colored it for some reason!). i glittered the snowflakes, and popped up the mushroom and gnome to guessed it: dimension. i also ripped some textured white cardstock to give the illusion of snowcovered hills.

the cherry on top of this card (in my book), is the sentiment. i love plays on words.

anyhow, it turns out this is one of my favorite cards - possibly because of the gnome and mushroom, i can't lie. :)

enjoy! and thanks again!
