"You Can never Have Too Much Happy"

Be Awesome Today 

If Love was.......

To make these I started with a printed background on card stock, whether gelli printed, water colored or printed. Layers come next with different papers, both solids and printed for dimension. Next comes the main image, the female swimmers were from Sweet Summer Days  sheet and the crab was from Fish Camp sheet both from the Gecko Galz Etsy shop.. Embellishments come next, 3d beach balls, stickers, netting, shells, and ribbon trim. The final piece is always the sentiment, stamped or printed.

There are so many cute Mushroom girlies on this sheet! The other mushroom images  were from my stash. There is a bit of Stickles glitter too. The sentiment came last with "Those who don't believe in magic will never find it".



 To make this greeting card I printed the Gecko Galz image Rainbow Connection on a blank card, The mushroom fairy image is from the Gecko Galz Collage sheet called Mushroom Maidens . The other mushroom images  were from my stash. I added metallic butterflies for some shine and there is a bit of Stickles glitter too.  Some ruffled and colorful ribbon came next.

Artfully yours,

Gerri
