Gecko Galz Blue and Silver FB Challenge
Had fun playing today with one of my Gecko Galz Collage sheets and made a Christmas card for the December Blue and Silver Color Challenge on their FB page. The image is not a Christmas one, but cut from the Fairy Frocks sheet I got from the Fripperies and Butterflies Blog for the Gecko Galz July Fairy Merry Challenge. (There's a great challenge every month there and a Freebie with which to participate. Check it out!) I cut a window in my card with my Spellbinders long oval dies and added an acetate window that I stamped with a snow flurry stamp using white StazOn. I added a gorgeous mirror snowflake that I've been hoarding for years and flat backed gems to some of the stamped snowflakes and trimmed the card with peel offs.
It was sort of hard to photograph so here's a better view of the stamped window.
Inside is a better view of the gorgeous image and more peel offs for the inside sentiment. I'm really enjoying working with these vintage images and am thrilled how this card came out.
I'm also adding this to the Unruly Paper Arts 12 Days of Christmas Linky Party. (Bummer I missed yesterday, but you needn't play every day to join in.), Craft Hoarders Anonymous Celebrate the Season, Simon Says Monday Holiday Cards, Simon Says Wednesday Christmas/Holidays, the Frilly and Funky Vintage Holiday Challenge, the SOSS V is for Vintage Challenge and the Eclectic Ellapu Dec Vintage Christmas card Challenge.
