Featured day at Gecko Galz

March's challenge is Springtime in Paris, so in carrying on with that tagline I made 3 atc's - ,

The first & last papers come from 'Tres Chic Atc Backs', the middle from 'Marie's Garden', the decoupaged Eiffel Tower topper came from the design sheet from the last post, the words came out of an old Dictionary. The end atc with the glass cabochon is my favourite, a definite keeper in my 'crafty treasure' box. 

For these and many more designs, check out the Gecko Galz shop!

Springtime in Paris

Over on the Gecko Galz blog, the challenge for March is 'Springtime in Paris'. Feel free to join in and have a play - there is only one rule, and that is you need to use at least ONE product from the Gecko Galz but it can also be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers!! The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz shopping spree!

So today, I've made an A5 card - I was going to do a 'stand-up' card but decided it should be a proper folded card, I might make a cream box for it to go in rather than use an envelope.

I used a paper from the Parisian Dreams Paper Pack, printed it out twice, one for the background and one to use as decoupage, although I only decoupaged the bigger Eiffel Tower image, I did cut out the smaller one, but didn't use it as the flowers were going to be covering a part of it.

The flowers and the embellishments came from Craft Box - I love the little vintage cabouchon - must try and get some more of these, I used another in another project..... posting tomorrow.

The sentiment I found whilst tidying up my desk so I could get a space to work..... normal sized desk - actual work space the size of an A4 paper *lol*
