Gecko Galz Blog Hop

Welcome Everyone to the 3rd Annual Gecko Galz Tricks and Treats Blog Hop.

First I have a tag, which uses the following Gecko Galz products: images from Pretty as a Postcard and Darling Dragonflies. They were both fussy cut and edges inked. The tag was painted, stenciled, stamped and edged in gold paint. The word stickers are by Splash of Color (from Hobby Lobby), small white doily from Martha Stewart and rhinestones from my stash.

I also made a card, using papers from the Star Crossed and Wild Roses sets. The flower wreath is from a die cut sheet (12 x 12), which was inked. The individual flowers were cut out and layered into a free form wreath shape. More flowers were added beneath an image from the Pretty as a Postcard sheet. I also added teal sequins.
