Gecko Galz: Let It Snow

Happy New Year!

Here we are at the start of 2017.  I wonder what's in store for us all this year? Whatever it is, I hope you'll be happy and healthy and have plenty of time to create beautiful things.

Today I'm sharing my project for Gecko Galz. The January challenge is 'Let It Snow'. 
I made this card:

My basic card measures 5 inches by 5 inches, then it has the border on 3 sides which makes it 8 inches by 6.5 inches.

The background paper is from the Winter Wonderlands paper pack. I added some iridescent glue, using a Quickie glue pen, to some of the snowflakes. The border was die cut from white glitter card using a die from Yvonne Creations called Playful Winter Snowflake Border. The borders were attached to the back of the background paper, then the whole was adhered to the card base.

I used some tiny flower trim which I thought looked a little like snowflakes to cover the join between the border and the paper. In each corner I added a die cut snowflake with a jumbo flat-back pearl.

The beautiful image I used is from the new Winter Beauties collage sheet. I resized it to make it a little larger and distressed the edges and inked them in Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo. I placed the image on top of some frayed linen and attached them to the background on foam tape. Vintage-style lace was glued around the image and a couple of die-cut snowflakes were added.

These are the Gecko Galz products used:

I hope you'll join our challenge. The winner gets a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.

The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product (this can be one of the freebies, so check back through the blog (especially the blog hop page where you'll find links to the DT's blogs and be able to download free collage sheets) and also look at the freebies on the Pinterest page, or of course you can buy at the Etsy store!) 
Also if you sign up for the Gecko Galz newsletter, you'll be able to claim a free collage sheet each month.
