Gnome Sweet Gnome

I've had a new stamp set setting on my craft table for over a week now and just couldn't decide exactly what to do with it. This is where challenge sites really help out!  I found a great sketch at Stamping 411 and then realized during my challenge hunting that my card would also work for Top Tip Tuesday's Anything Goes and The Squirrel and the Fox's Something New.  Since this stamp set just came out in the catalog yesterday and I haven't inked it yet, I think this will qualify as new!  The pool party seam binding is also new.

I received this set for free (demo perk!!) and really wasn't sure how I would us it before this.  My girls loved it, mostly due to the movie Gnomeo and Juliette!  I haven't put a sentiment inside because I'm trying to find something 'punny' to go with the images. I would love to hear your suggestions!!

I did A LOT of fussy cutting on this and while I love the finished appearance, this is still not my favorite technique!  Guess I just need to keep at it!

Thanks for looking!

    p.s..."To gnome you is to love you!" "Gnome-one is as special as you!" "Gnome what? I love you!"
    Not sure they're quippy enough, but I gave it a shot. ;)
    Oh..."You really rock my world" if they're made of stone. Hahahaa...ok, maybe I just crack myself up.
    Have a great weekend!!!
