Gecko Galz April Customer Challenge project

It is April and I am looking forward to warmer weather and my flowers to bloom, which brings us to our theme for April : Garden Bliss
What is a beautiful garden without birds and butterflies, I have made two cards showing my garden theme.


The Butterfly card
I used a yellow card stock for my card base and the image is from Gecko Galz Butterfly dreams 2 which I matted in a purple card stock. I printed out two of the images and one is used for the card front and the other I cut out the butterflies and gently folded them and popped them up on the card front image with a foam tape piece.



The Bird Card
I used craft paper for my card base and the image was from Gecko Galz Birdie Darlings 1.  Both card base and image were inked with brown ink. Again I printed two of the images and one was used for card front and I cut the cardinal out and popped it up with foam tape. 

Come join us in our challenge by creating your Garden Bliss and a chance to win some Gecko Galz goodies...just click on the picture at the top left of my blog which will take you to the info.
