May Flowers

 
 
 Hi All, today I am sharing a card I made for the Gecko Galz DT.    For this 5 x 7 card I used the image from May Days along with the Floral Symphony paper.  I printed them both on to Staples matte photo paper, distressed the edge with Ranger Weathered Wood, added some tiny pearls to surround the medallion and some Stampin Up Crystal Effects to the medallion itself.  My bottle of Crystal effects is very old and it has started to yellow a bit which made it work perfectly on this medallion.   I used a little pink lace to finish it off.  I printed the envelope liner on regular copy paper and glued it inside the envelope.
Don't forget there is still time to enter the Gecko Galz Mothers Day May challenge at the Gecko Galz blog.  I hope to see some of you there.   
That's it, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane

  15. You always manage to showcase an image that didn't "speak" to me and make it sing so I want to use it immediately. Fabulous card and paper combination.
