Hello Gnome

I got the Forest Whimsy set from Paper Smooches back before Christmas and never inked it up... until today.  Here's the card I came up with:

I used the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge image for color inspiration and the stripes, but also for the outdoorsy theme (gnome, grass, background is wood grain). I colored in his beard and face and paper pieced his clothes with some striped paper.

Here's a  close up of the paper piece, coloring, and sparkly clouds:
