Two of the Seven Dwarfs- Happy and Grumpy

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! Today it is my turn to share a fun image from Whimsy.

I would like to share a card I made using a Whimsy Digital image from the Meljen's Digital Collection called Gruffy Little Gnome. The sentiment is from Ticket Sentiments designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy. I seldom do cards for men but I needed a Thinking of you or Get Well card for an older gentleman at our church who has been very ill and in out of the hospital. I thought this image was so darling and would put a smile on his face.

For my layout, I used the Midnight Madness sketch challenge for this week which I flipped. The papers are from Bo Bunny. The image is colored with Prisma Color pencils and gamsol and sparkle is added to the hat. For the ovals along the thin strip I added sewing and buttons. You can see it better if you click on the photo for a close up.

Since it is a manly card, I used the Labels Eight Spellbinders and distressed the edges. For the sentiment, there is a blank ticket in the Ticket sentiments set where hand wrote the word Sorry.
