Happy New Year ~ Unity Stamp Co. Blog Hop

Happy birthday to Angela.
We are having a celebration blog hop for Angela's birthday, Unity's fearless leader.
Hooray!!!

It's Gaylynn here with project inspiration for the Unity Stamp Co. blog  hop and stamp release.


Sentiment:
We are in each other's lives for a reason.  Thank you for showing up.

I really love the gnomes sitting in the garden.  What a CUTE couple.  I have heard that they also look a little like wizards.  Fun and cute, either way.

For this card, I used colored pencils and colored pens.  I like to dab a bit of colored pen here and there to accent and make it pop more, especially with the soft look of the pencils.

Here is a quick video tutorial for this gnome card:

And here is the card up close.
