LOVE...a card...

Good morning everyone! 

I hope you all had a 
Very Merry Christmas 
and will enjoy a 
Happy Healthy New Year!

Today I want to share a card I made for my
Gecko Galz DT project.

This year Leeanne has added kits into the mix of all her wonderful collage sets, paper packs, stamp sets, etc... over at Gecko Galz Etsy
(more about the KIT Club below)

To make this card I used a few of the pieces from our first set
Love Potion #9!

I made this card for my husband

I used a brownish piece of cardstock for the card, another redish piece on centered.
I topped that with one of the Love Potion papers.
I used a shimmery red paper in back of the heart die cut and added that topping it with the Love Potion Icon heart with pop dots. 

For the ticket I started out with a bead of glitter glue around the edges but wasn't happy with it so I got out my handy dandy finger and smeared it all over. 
Now I was happy with that 
 it was a bit sticky so I added glossy accents on top which gave it some extra shine!
Yay bonus!
 I put a pop dot in the center and glue on the ends to give it a bit of a wave over the hearts.

I wrapped the fibers behind the ticket and topped it with a couple of flowers I made with 
a Seeing Red paper (red & cream) as well as 
a scrap off my desk (the pink paper), 
added the leaves and topped it with a black Irock gem. 

The Candi's (brad's) were added to the top.

Inside I simply matted a piece of the Love Potion papers so I can add a sweet sentiment to or a mushy letter to my hubby!
