* Gecko Galz: Summer Time Fun


Today is my DT day at Gecko Galz and I have some retro Summer Time projects to share.

The first is a trio of summer cards:

The cards were made with similar designs - nothing complicated just matting and layering and some pretty trims. I chose colourful images and matching papers from the hundreds available at the Gecko Galz Etsy store.
