* Gecko Galz: Love Paris


This month, over at Gecko Galz, we have a customer challenge and the theme is Paris in Springtime.

I made these cards for inspiration:

Card 1: Je t'aime

I love this topper which comes from the A Rose is a Rose collage set. I teamed it with paper from the Timeless paper collection, distressing and inking the edges. It is mounted onto some embossed pearlescent card, but the crochet lace edging covers most of it up. I thought this sentiment was perfect for the card - it is from the Charming Words collage set. I added some lacy rose trim, a couple of gems and some jumbo pearls as finishing touches.

Card 2: Bienvenue 

This is such a simple card - really quick and easy to assemble! I chose a topper from the Provence Garden collage set and inked the edges. It is popped, at an angle, on foam pads on top of some paper from the Timeless paper pack and matted onto ivory pearlescent card. Both the paper and card are distressed. As finishing touches, I added some coffee coloured crochet lace, some pearl bead trim and a decoupaged butterfly from the Butterfly Kisses collage set.
