Gecko Galz wants to see your Valentine!

Hi All, there is still time to join the Gecko Galz Valentines Contest, you have until January 31st, and there are some great prizes.  This is one of my Gecko Galz  design team cards I made for the challenge.   I used the image from Gecko Galz Valentine Wishes along with the Bingo sheet from from Gecko Galz Bits and Pieces.  I printed them both on matte/matte photo paper from Staples.  Ribbon is from Stampin Up, red hearts are from my stash and I used Stickles Crystal on the rose.  For the envelope liner I used Basic Grey True Love papers
 Instructions:  I printed the Bingo sheet twice and fussy cut the rose out of the second sheet.  I printed the Valentines Wishes image and mounted it onto a piece of brown card stock,  I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to trim a 3/16th border, then mounted that on to the Bingo sheet. I added the red ribbon and red hearts and then mounted the whole sheet on to a white 5 x 7 folded card.  I trimmed the edges of the rose with Stickles, then placed a piece of dimensional foam underneath it.  For the envelope liner I printed a 4 x 6 image of the Basic Grey True Love papers and used a fancy edge scissor to trim it on the top edge.  I put it in position inside the envelope and then fold the crease, once it is folded I use a little little white glue to hold it in place.
Well that's it, thanks for stopping by and thanks for looking.  ~Diane
