It's your Day to Bask in the Sun!

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I have a quick card to share for my design team post.  I'm using one of the die sets from the new Springtime die release.  This die release offers so many wonderful dies which are currently on sale.  Also, check out the St. Patrick's Day sale going on through tomorrow!

For today's post, I used the Gnome Sleeping in Hammock die set.  Using basic card stock for the die cut pieces, I followed the package design for my colors.  I changed the gnome's hat to a patterned design.
The ink blended card base is a background that I had created some time ago and ended up not using it for my project.  It seemed to be the perfect background for the sleepy little gnome.
The die cut scene was placed in the center of my card against the yellow portion of the ink blended background.  The yellow is a nice contrast against the die cut pieces.
I found a whimsical sentiment in my stash of stamps and added it to a coordinating strip of paper and adhered it at an angle in the corner of my card.
The edges of the sentiment tag were snipped off with some scissors using the card base as a guide.
This card came together very quickly and  will be a fun celebratory card for a birthday, Father's Day or other special occasion.
Here is the die set used on my card, available in the store:
