Springtime Gem of a sale!

 Hi All, great news today to go along with this Gecko Galz DT piece.  In celebration of our third annual retreat we are having a one day buy one get one sale for all our friends and followers. Just go to the Gecko Galz Site and for every product you buy you get another absolutely FREE!
 If you look closely at the image you can see her looking into a hand mirror, so I thought this would be a great idea for a Birthday card for one of my girlfriends.   For this 5 x 7 card I chose the image from Springtime Gems, I printed it on matte photo paper then glued it to a piece of Stampin Up dark purple card stock, I trimmed a 1/16 border of purple with my Perfect Layers Ruler.  I used the free die cut of the rose pattern from Birdscards in green for the card and in purple for the envelope liner.  I added a piece of purple behind the green die cut.  The ribbon and lace trims were then attached, then I added my image and border on top with some foam tape.

  11. That die-cut is really neat and I like that you used the reverse to line the envelope. I love green and purple together! We got a little more snow, and more to come this weekend. I am glad I have my art room and don't have to leave it this weekend.
