Pink Cat Studio Ninbert Gnome for FIL

Hi girls and my first male follower I noticed the other day!!
I know it's been a while since my last post. I did make a box for my parents but I can't show you that one yet. I do have a card to show you I made for my father in law though.

My friend Melissa from Pink Cat Studio send me these cute gnomes ages ago and asked me if I wanted to make a card with one or more of them. I'm sorry to say I didn't get around to using one of them sooner. Since in honor of his birthday tomorrow we are taking my Father in Law (together with my MIL of course) for a nice morning in the woods and after that a nice brunch I figured a gnome would work very well for this card. Besides, my FIL, who is a very nice FIL to have and an incredible grandfather, is a real garden gnome himself with his front and backgarden and his vegetable garden where he enjoys spending a lot of time. So without further ado, here is my card with Ninbert the Gnome by Pink Cat Studio:
Isn't he cute! The papers are craft and red cardstock and very old ones by Chatter Box (using up my old stash :) ). The ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafs, the button twine is from Whiff of Joy and the button stars are from Buttons Galore and More. The sentiment reads hartelijk gefeliciteerd (Happy Birthday) and is from THIS set by my friend Nicole Verkooijen. Naturally I used some Stickles and a white gell pen. Here is a close up of Ninbert, colored with my Copics and 3D paperpieced:
I'll give you the Copics I used at the end of this post (zo goed Diaantje ;) ). Here is a view from the top with the Tegoedbon (gift certificate) inside:
And a last picture of the complete card with the gift certificate. Dames, als iemand het word bestande van de tegoedbon wil mag je mij altijd mailen. Hij is heel simpel hoor maar toch :).
That's it! Hope you like my card! I'll leave you with the Copics used:
