Teacher Gnome

This may not look like a typical "card for teacher", but I love the "you light up my lawn!" and inside, I'm putting something to the effect of "Thanks for growing our kids", to go with the garden theme (especially good for a Kindergarten teacher ;) I just love sets that are good for simple watercoloring like this! Also, I used ribbon here, but not in the usual way at all... I used Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding ribbon with the top half of horizontal threads pulled out to make the fringe grass at the back, and then tiny pieces of the Lucky Limeade Organdy from Sale-a-bration 2012 to accent the front of the grass. 

Challenges I used:

Pile It On - All that Flickers
Color Throwdown - (see below)
Mojo Monday - (sketch below)
Paper Playtime - Use 3 different papers
Ribbon Carousel - Back to School
