May Customer Challenge Entry for Gecko Galz with step-by-step

Hello Crafty Friends!  It's time for a new challenge at the Gecko Galz Blogspot.  This month our Challenge theme is "Flying High, things with wings"
You will have until May 29th to enter.  There is only one rule.  You will need to use at least ONE  product from Gecko Galz!!
It can be one of our free products, digital stamps, collage sheet images, or digital papers!!  It is up to you!!
The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree in our Etsy shop.

Below is my entry with step-by-step instructions to create this card.

Begin with a manila card stock base.

Add a mat from the Tim Holtz core-dinations distress collection.  I used green to bring out the green ribbon in my image.

Sand the paper to distress and reveal some of the core.

Print out the following background papers and images:

VP3 from the Vintage Visions mini paper pack (music notes)
FB04 from the free birds paper pack digital background paper (April Kit Club)
FB12 feather images (April Kit Club free birds icons 1)
FB19 red bird in cage (April Kit Club free birds icons 2)
Vintage lady image from the Colorful Cuties 2 collage sheet

Cut the free birds background paper to cover about 2/3 of the way across the card and round the corners.  Cut the paper so that it fits the image nicely to reveal the greenery, and leave a little space at the bottom for your sentiment. 

Attach to the green cardstock base.  

Cut a tag shape from the vintage vision paper, and place over the patterned paper at a slight angle. 

Mat the vintage lady image with manila cardstock and attach.

Fussy cut the feather image and add with dimensional pop dots.

Fussy cut the bird image from the caged bird, cutting off the tail portion, and perch atop the branches in the background paper.

Embellish with buttons

Print and add a sentiment of your choice.
