Paper Smooches Release Challenge - no pattern paper

Hello again! Just popping in to share a card I created for the Paper Smooches new release challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers - to make a card with NO pattern paper! This was actually a lot easier than I expected! Here is what I made:

I am also playing along with this weeks Cas-ual Friday Challenge - buttons:

And with CASology: Camp theme (the colors are totally ones that make me think of the outdoors and camping, and I'm pretty sure this cute little gnome lives outdoors, so isn't that camping?)

I used the adorable single little Paper Smooches Stamp called Jerome, stamped him on Copic blending cardstock, and colored him with my Copics. It has been a while since I sat and colored that much - so fun and relaxing! Then, I fussy cut him out to adhere to my cardbase with foam adhesive. 

The green cardstock is from My Favorite Things, as is the matching button tied on with twine. Kraft cardstock is by Avery Elle. I debossed with PTI's Linen Impression Plate, popped up the sentiment from Sentiment Sampler on a smaller strip of kraft paper, and rounded a couple corners. 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a fantastic day!
