Retro Sketches #26

I used my new Paper Smooches Chubby Chums set to make a card for this week's Retro Sketches rs#26 Challenge.  I bought the set mainly for the owl, but after seeing the stamps in person, I think all those critters will eventually see some ink.

Exciting news:  In a true strike of beginner's luck, I was selected as an Honorable Gnome for this card, which was my first entry ever in the Lawnscaping Challenge.  Check out my cute little Gnome up there on the right.  Isn't he darling?

Supplies Used: 
Stamps:  Paper Smooches Chubby Chums
Paper:  PTI White, Enchanted Evening, Canyon Clay, Scarlet Jewel
Ink:  Scarlet Jewel, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other:  Mat Stack 4 & Layerz Mat Stack 4, Copics

Thanks for Visiting
