Yes you can can!


 
Hi All, hope you are keeping comfortable and enjoying the weather where you are.  
I made this card with one of the Gecko Galz images from the Individual collage sheet Showtime.
My friend asked me to make a special card for a friend of hers that is going through a tough time with cancer, this image really spoke to me in hopes of inspiring strength, yes you can can (for those of you not old enough to remember, this looks like one of the girls that did a dance called the Can Can, lol).  I also used some Stampin Up card stock, embossed the lavender sheet and placed the 1/16 trimmed edge with my Perfect Layers Rulers,  love how it trims it up perfectly!
I did a close up to show the Stickles Frosted Lace I used.  When I bought it I had hoped it would be a bit more opaque, so I was a bit disappointed at the time.  I decided to give it a shot on the lace ruffle of the dress and I just love the effect, it really gives it a lacy feel, my camera makes it look sparkly, but it is not, just a real nice ruffled lace look.
I can't forget the envelope liner, I used Gecko Galz Pocket Full of Posies Paper Pack for this, I really love the vintage feel to it.  Speaking of Gecko Galz, be sure to stop by the store, Leanne is offering her bi annual  buy 1 get one (of equal or lesser value) free sale, it's a great time to stock up!
Well that's it for today, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane
