Gatsby Gal


Here is my final Gatsby card using Gecko Galz images from the Cats Meow collage sheet and Gatsby digital paper pack paired with Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 stamp set, Art Eccentric.  I made this card for a cousin following her knee surgery.  She has a great sense of humor, so I'm  hoping she gets a kick out of it.


I'm entering this in the challenge at  Luna Girl Moonbeams


The July challenge at the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group is Anything Goes but we must use at least one Studio 490 stamp.  This qualifies.
