Garden Gnome Birthday

 My mother is turning 87 in a few weeks and she just redid her Gnome Garden (lifting concrete blocks and all! - you've seen the Mr. Clean and his grandma commercial - that's my mom!).  So I thought a Garden Gnome birthday card was very appropriate.  The box card is a file from -it's from their summer boxes, the party celebrations box.  The Gnomes are from My Scrap Chick - they have amazing files! I sized the gnomes down a bit so they would fit in the box.

 I just love the little daydreamer at the bottom (that's me!).

 I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Deep Ocean Challenges -At least one flower
Fun with Shapes and More - Midsummer Night's Dream (elves, fairy tales, love, marriage)

Thanks for looking!
