'Gnome Sweet Gnome' Pop 'n Cuts & Cricut Card

Well I survived camp (and loved it in fact - a cross between a feat of endurance, and the most precious time possible with some wonderful girls and leaders).
Anyway, I wanted to make my sister and her family a card - they just moved this week to Sheffield for my brother-in-law's new job as an eye surgeon.
The card is very tongue in cheek...
I used Karen Burniston's Square Pop 'n Cuts base with Ornate Edges, with the Wavy Frame insert.
I also used the Wavy Label Framelits for the cream layer on the pop-out piece, for the grass piece (which I then finished cutting by hand), for the bit to write on and for the layers on the card front.
 I also used clouds cut with Papertrey Ink dies, and a gnome cut from Cricut's 'Freshly Picked' cartridge. 
I cut the little sign by hand.
All the papers are from Cosmo Cricket's 'Pretty Floral' pad.
The green scallops were cut using Tim Holtz's Scallops On the Edge die, and the heart is from Sizzix Owl #2.
The front, using Hero Art's Printers Lowercase Alphabet stamps, and swirls from the Square Pop 'n Cuts base die.
