Gnomes for Bitten by the Bug 2

     Today's card uses the gnome on the Freshly Picked cart. I redressed it to match a set of Norwegian nissen that were my grandmother's. She brought them back from Norway. I made this card for my aunt's birthday. It also qualifies for Bitten By The Bug 2, which wants you to use the gnome. So don't tell them that it isn't a gnome but a nisse ;- ) The rest of the card is basic, since all of my time went into the paper piecing and customizing of the clothes. Some of them had to be specially tailored ;- )






      I did take a few artistic liberties, but my Aunt will get the idea.  Any punches I had were too large for her skirt, so I paper pierced it. I should have cut the guys jacket into a vest.



     Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful weekend full of blessings!
