Christmas Kickstart Challenge

 I almost forgot to post my card that I specifically made for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge - shame on me!

I really had fun making this card with these cute gnomes.  I used several different sets of dies to make this card and that's one more card in my Xmas card pile.

Lots of snow mounds and fun gnomes as I'm looking at the card straight on and close up.  I do like the application of "True Snow" to the hats that (to me) resemble fur and give lots of texture.  That front little gnome is drinking tea!

This card shows more of an overhead view.
