Gecko Galz Guest Artist: Beautiful Dreamer

Good morning folks, how's your week going? My card today is one of the projects I created as Guest Artist over at Gecko Galz. As well as lots of gorgeous Christmas goodies, there are some beautiful vintage collage sheets called 'Beautiful Dreamer' and I couldn't resist using one of the lovely wistful ladies for this card.

I used a pretty vintage backing paper, also from Gecko Galz (from the Camelot Paper Pack) to cover a pretty shaped card blank and layered the image up over cheesecloth, feahers, pretty lace and ribbon (from the Ribbon Girl). I added lots of gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some little wired gems from my stash and some fluffy feathers.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
365 cards: Vintage with fabric
Allsorts: ribbon and bows
Creative Moments: Lace/ anything goes
Happy Campers: show us your flowers
Paper Shelter: 2 colours
Ribbon Girl: October Colour challenge
Sister Act: anything goes

If youv'e got a min, do check out the amazing Gecko Galz blog, as well as amazing artwork from the talented DT you can sign up for a fabby newsletter which comes with a grogeous freebie too.
Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

  1. This is so gorgeous Claire. Super image, the inking and embellishments are lovely - but most of all - wow - what a fab use of that shaped card. I have a pack of those and have only used two. Any chance you could let us know the measurements before I waste the whole pack trying to re-create this style?
