A Little Cheeky Love for Gecko Galz.

I'm lovin' the fun images from the Kirchner Cuties Collage sheet from Gecko Galz and made a fun, flirty Valentine.  I printed the sentiment right on the image and cut it out and matted it.  I thought the vintage looking neutral papers from the DCWV La Crema stack suited the image well.  The pop of red came from the Gecko Galz Love Potion #9 Digi Papers which is available in the January Monthly Kit (and by a 12 month subscription at a discounted price with extra goodies) which I scaled down in my Printmaster Program and cut out the hearts.  The gorgeous fringe trim was a gift from an Aussie friend I've been hoarding forever!

There's a bit of a hidden surprise on the front.  Here's the tag with the flirty sentiment.  I've used Spellbinders Labels 11, glued the computer generated sentiment diagonally across and re cut and embossed.  Finally I've added some adhesive beads to the hearts and tag ribbon.

Don't forget the All You Need is Love challenge on the Gecko Galz Challenge Blog running through January 30th (with a big prize!) and our multiple monthly challenges on our FB Group page.  Subscribe to the newsletter (top left of Challenge Blog) for monthly Freebies and check out the Pinterest Page for even more! 

I'm entering this in the Papertake Weekly Get in Shape Challenge (rectangles, hearts and whatever the tag shape is), Inspiration Destination ATG, TTRCD ATG Jan 20-26, the Cheerful Stamp Pad Valentine Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday Have a Heart, That Craft Place Love/Valentine, and Bunny Zoe January Hearts challenge.
