* Gecko Galz: Wild World


I've had this lovely image from Gecko Galz on my desk for a couple of weeks and decided it was time to put it to use.

I made a card and added one of the Music Maker Sentiments which I thought was appropriate.

Isn't this such a beautiful scene? I mean, I know it's not so good for the people on the ship, but the wildness and natural beauty here is astounding. The image is one of 50 from the January Pre-Raphaelite Monthly Kit from Gecko Galz. (This is a yearly subscription kit club - each month you receive a different themed kit containing 50 images. You can join anytime and you will get the back months straight away. 
I teamed the image (PRA42) with some vintage coloured patterned papers from my stash; I distressed the edges to add to the wildness :) I knew I wanted the 'Wild World' sentiment, but didn't want it to distract from the image, so I printed it out onto vellum. I added three paper flowers and called my card done.


That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our Silly Love Songs Challenge where the winner will get a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.
