A Friendship Card with a Trio of Winter Gnomes

Hello and welcome! 

It's Saturday already and that means it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. Lynn is hosting and her theme is "use a die". We have 2 prizes again - a choice of 3 digi stamps from Ruth Hamilton Designs and a beautiful Tattered Lace die for the second winner. Hope you'll join us for your chance to win!

I don't use digis too often anymore because I am limited with what coloring medium to use with them (due to the ink smearing) but sometimes I can't resist and that was the case with this cute winter gnome image from our sponsor Ruth Hamilton Designs that was just recently released.

I printed them out 3 times and colored using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Then I fussy cut each one. 
I created my snowy scene using a retired border die set from Whimsy Stamps (this is a similar option but would be easy enough to cut by hand), and the tree die is from Penny Black's die set Beneath the Birches

The sentiment is from my favorite Christmas stamp set Season's Gifts by Penny Black. I added a couple snowflake die cuts to finish off the card. 

Thanks so much for visiting!
