Long Ago Tag

The Gecko Galz customer challenge for June is Ladies of Long Ago.  Here is my design team inspiration tag


If you would like to enter the customer challenge, be sure to link up your entry at our Gecko Galz BLOG or email a picture of your project by June 29th to geckogalz2014@gmail.com 
And On July 1st we will announce our winner at Gecko Galz. Winner gets $25.00 in Gecko Galz product and a digital kit prize pack from our sponsor this month, Opticillusions.


This tag also serves as my "roses" tag for Tag Tuesday. I haven't had time to play much over there.  Be sure to visit to see how everyone interpreted the theme.

This tag makes me very happy because I've used a lot of things from my stash that have been collecting for years.  The beautiful handmade flower is from a design site gift exchange.  I'm pretty sure Bitsy made it.  The row of flower trim along the bottom is K and Co.   A bit of leftover crochet trim and gems are out of the box permanently!  The cluster of paper roses in the top left corner are from the Flying Unicorn when I was on the design team.  I used lots of old papers.

The image is from Gecko Galz June 2014 release: Her Beautiful Colors collage sheet.  The butterfly from my Martha Stewart punch to which I added some gems.  It seems I can't live without my Stampabilities Nestabilities Label die cuts.  New, first time used, is my much anticipated Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lattice Swirl die template.  (I picked that up at their booth at a Scrapbook Convention.)  The lattice (4 pieces) and butterfly are cut from lilac paper but it looks almost white in the photo. Ribbon is from a recent craft challenge win. I used all these products to mimic the dress and adornments of this lovely lady who epitomizes the traditional vieiw of feminine and fancy.
