Here in Wales Spring has begun, we have had some beautiful sunny days which has made every one happy and smiley. 

This has influenced my card for today - with a bright sunny sky and the gnomes have venture out into their garden to plant their flowers - which is what I shall be doing later! 

I have used the Gnome digital Set which you can purchase here 


The images have been printed out on a laser printer and coloured with Promarkers before being fussy cut.

To create this DL card, I created the background on a scalloped Dl piece of card with Tim Holts Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Fossilized amber for the sky and for the grass I used Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint) with some stencils from Time for Tea Designs 

I then added the images to the background with Glue and Foam pads.
