* Gecko Galz: December Christmas Image


As soon as I saw the December Christmas Image on the Gecko Galz blog, I knew I wanted to make a card with it. This Santa image is gorgeous - so much beautiful detail, lots of cute creatures and glorious winter colours.

I decided to use the card sketch from the December Gecko Galz Facebook challenges, so all that I had to do was choose some background papers. I settled for the beautiful Starburst ATC papers and teamed them with silver glitter card from my stash.

I used the 'rough enough is good enough' technique for measuring. My paper trimmer blade is on it's last legs and chews the paper rather than slicing it - this is such a pain as I have to constantly trim bits off and the paper pieces just get smaller :)  However I managed to get the shapes and the mats for each layer and I chose three sparkly jelly button gems as my embellishment.
I love how this turned out. In real life it is so sparkly.

That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our December challenges where the winners will get a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.
