Gnome for the Holidays

Got this Stamp Set just before the Pandemic and was going to use it for all my Christmas cards; however, the patterns on the hats, tree, presents and ornaments were all white space, and it's quite time consuming to fill in with the different patterns.  Decided to use the CTMH gnomes instead and use pattern paper for the background... so this special gnome card is for my favorite daughter and her family.  Although maybe after doing 35-40 cards I might have perfected the coloring... lol.  

Once I did all my coloring it was pretty easy to finish my card.  In my stash there was a snowflake embossed piece which became my background layered with ruby cardstock.  A partial fussy-cut on my gnome image, also layered with ruby cardstock and adhered to background with 3D thin foam tape.  Stamped a sentiment first on the embossed background (which I messed up) so ended up re-stamping on cardstock, fussy-cut around words and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.
