Garden Gnome Girl Lucy

Whoo Hoo!  It's the Sweet November July release!  The July release features three Garden Gnome Girls.  Today we are showcasing Lucy.  The moment I saw the ladybug on her apron, I knew I had to use black and red on this image and card.  Her dress called out to be paper pieced and of course she had to have a matching band on her bonnet.  After cutting her out (thank you Amy for making this image so easy to cut out), she needed a background and this aqua with white flowers from Echo Park's Hello Summer coordinated quite well with the red with white flowers from My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy 2.  I designed the sentiment (which I've added to this post as a special freebie for you), and adhered it to a black cardstock circle.  A white die cut strip and a puffed ladybug finished the card.




Please check out Amy's blog, A Thousand Sheets of Paper, Nancy's blog, Creative Palette, and Marion's blog, Card's by MarionE to see their creations using Garden Gnome Lucy.  Amy is once again so generous in offering blog candy.  All you have to do is leave a nice comment on our blogs.  All the names will go in a hat, and a winner will be drawn for each of the three Garden Gnome Girls.  If you are not one of the lucky winners, do not despair.  The stamps, both digi and rubber, will be available for purchase at All That Scraps on the night of Thursday, July 5th.
