Gecko Galz Blog Challenge card

 I made this card for the Gecko Galz Blog Challenge. You definitely need to check it out, they are having a challenge on their blog, to see what everyone has done with their products either from the free sheets you get each month with the newsletter...or the blog hop goodies....or even the free cyber Monday images....or things you have purchased.  On December 30th they will choose three winners who will win 1st second and third place for their designs. and what will you win? First place will win a year of collage sets (each month you will get all 5 of their collage sheets for one full year), second place will win their digital stamp set each month for a year (that will be a total of 12 stamp sets) and the third place winner will receive their choice of one FREE collage sheet each month for a year!  Not bad for doing what we all love doing and that is creating fun projects.  How awesome would that be!  I suggest you hurry on over and give me some competition to worry about!  But be careful, I think a lot of entries are being emailed so there is a whole lot of competition going on for these awesome prizes!  
Oops, I almost forgot, I used Gecko Galz  Winter Time Collection 
image, I wish you could see it IRL, I fussy cut and layered on the hat and coat and also added flock to the muff and hat.  The awesome papers are from Gecko Galz Grandma's House Paper Collection .
I used my Perfect Layers square and rulers to get the nice square cuts and borders.  (use my link and coupon code Bove5%, you will save 5% on the Perfect layers rulers and get flat rate priority shipping). to get the nice square cuts and borders. 
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
