* Gecko Galz: Walk With Nature


March is here along with all the signs of spring and longer days for those of us in the northern hemisphere.

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over on the Gecko Galz Blog and the theme for March is Walk With Nature.

We would love to see your interpretation of this theme and everyone is invited to join as long as they use at least one Gecko Galz product (and many are free - see below at the end of this post). The lucky winner receives a $25 store voucher.

Here is what I made:

It's a trio of ATCs. I used the Garden Dreams ATC set for the base and cut a slot in each towards the bottom where the foliage is. The fussy cut ladies and child were slotted behind the flowers and popped up on foam tape for dimension. Each one was matted onto kraft card and inked with Vintage Photo. I also added a butterfly from the Butterfly Dreaming Collage set. 

Below is each individual ATC:

The first ATC uses a beautiful lady from the Garden Time collage set.

The second ATC uses a lady from the Retro Garden Girls collage set.

And the third ATC uses a little girl from the Mistress Mary collage set.

I decided to make cards to place the ATC upon. I used lovely paper from the Dapper Nouveau ATC Collection and matted it onto kraft card. The ATCs were then used as card toppers. I am really pleased with how they turned out!

That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our Walk with Nature challenge where the winner will get 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 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 and get first claim on the monthly $1 deals!

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

We also have a friendly Facebook Group where there are 4 monthly challenges, each with a collage sheet prize. 
Do come and join us!

I'll be back on the 20th with more Gecko Galz projects.
