March at Gecko Galz

This is the first of my design team samples for Gecko Galz' March release.  For this card I used: 

Butterfly on ledger paper from Ephemera Days 2 sheet

Melancholy Baby digital paper from Bygone Days mini paper pack 

Entering this challenge:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #67 Show Me the Green and Some Ribbon  
The beige crochet ribbon across the bottom is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I intertwined some ribbon recycled from a Christmas gift.

Other products used:
Two complementary greens, one for card and one for mat.  (Featured here is Colorbok Earthtone Warm Textured Cardstock Pack)
Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Rectangles die
Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink
buttons from stash
beige paper for mat from stash

The Gecko Galz design team is featuring Spring Fling projects. 

Just like our Valentines, each design team member has been assigned a special day this month when her project will be featured on the Gecko Galz website complete with instructions on how to replicate it--and a special Gecko Galz product offer for two days only.   I've posted this badge on my sidebar as a handy link for you.   So be sure to visit Gecko Galz every other day this month.

My special day is March 22.  On that day, I will also post my project here on my blog.  After all the design team projects have been featured, you will be able to vote for your favorite project.  Voting will be open for one week before the winner is announced.
