The Gecko Galz July Customer Challenge is Here!

Welcome Crafty Friends!  It's time for a new Gecko Galz Customer Challenge!  Please join us for the current challenge "Seaside Memories" from July 1st - July 29th.  There is only one rule.  You need to use at least ONE product from Gecko Galz.  It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital background papers.  The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz shopping spree!
Below is my sample for our monthly customer challenge.   I created my card with the new July products and the July Kit Club Craft Kit.  I'm just loving our new kits, they are so packed full of goodness, and the opportunities for mixing and matching are endless.
(Instructions for this card at the bottom of the post)

  Don't forget to stop by the Gecko Galz blog and see what the rest of the team is creating!  On the first of each month the blog features the customer challenge entries created by the design team to inspire you, and throughout the month, the blog features the samples created by the team using the new products for that month.  It always amazes me how different everyone's samples are.  On July 3rd, I will be giving away another free digital stamp by Gecko Galz, so please come back and grab your free digi stamp and see what else I've created using our new July collage sheets and other products as well as images, icons, and backgrounds from the July Craft Kit!  

To create my sassy card, I began with a manila card base.  I printed out the striped background (sized at 5 x 7) from the Seaside Papers collection, and added it to the card base.  Next I added the sailboat background from the Seaside Icons 1 (from the July Kit Club).  The sassy girl is from the Poolside Princess collage sheet.  I printed her and fussy cut and added her to my card with pop dots.  The seagull is from a collection of sea related die cuts by Tim Coffey that I purchased a while back at Michael's.  I found my sentiment by using google images and typing in the words I wanted to use.  Everything has been inked with vintage photo.  Thanks for looking!
