Gecko Galz: Vintage Valentines


Today I'm sharing my project for Gecko Galz
The February challenge theme is 'Vintage Valentines'. 

I made this card:

My background is embossed mirror card matted onto black card.  The image is from Gecko Galz's 'A Rose is a Rose' collage sheet. I distressed the edges and inked with Vintage Photo. I made a mat out of cream card and sandwiched some frayed gauze in between. The pink paper is from the Star Crossed Paper Pack. I added some ivory lace down the left side, attached a raspberry ribbon and adhered some tiny flat-backed pearls. Two charms, a key and a heart, were attached on ribbon with a heart-shaped pearl. The sentiment was computer generated. 

I hope you'll join our 'Vintage Valentine' challenge. The winner gets a whopping $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 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.

Please hop over to the Gecko Galz blog to see the fabulous designs by the very talented DT.

We also have a Private Facebook Group where there are 5 monthly challenges, each with a collage sheet prize. Come and join us!

I'll be back on the 26th with more Gecko Galz projects.
