Hi Everyone!

I know I am rather chatty this week...lots going on! I wanted to help spread the word that Gecko Galz is looking to add three new members to their design team! So if you have ever been curiouse about working with a company on their design team this may be your chance! For all the information check out their blog at or their website at .
Also I wanted to remind everyone that if you have not already done so the "BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY" ends this weekend and leave a little response of what kind of candy you like for a chance to WIN WIN WIN!

So now lets create a pretty little card! I started with Gecko Galz Butterfly Garden paper and olive green card stock as my card base. I cut the butterfly Garden paper to 4 3/4" x 6 1/4"  and inked the edges with chestnut roan ink by Color Box. Then adhere to card front. I took 4 manilla colored tags and inked the edges useing the brown ink. Then in Photo shop take 4 vintage ladies (mine are from the "Goddess" collection from Gecko Galz) and ajust the color using brown and yellow to create sephia images print them out and cut them out and adhere to center of tag directly under the hole. underneath each image stamp a flourish image (I used Gecko Galz Garden Icon's clear stamps) Then take ribbon and using red line tape adhere strip to the top of the card (I used hand dyed silk ribbon from M & J Trimming ) Then take 1/2 yd of ribbon and string through tags and using glue dots adhere them to front of card faned out tie bows at each end of ribbon and adhere to each side of card creating a banner look. Then take vintage typewriter keys and spell out "Wish" (you can use any kind of letter items). And now you have a stunning birthday card with a vintage flair!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial day!
Happy Crafting
