It's a gecko!

Hi there!

I was going through some of the digital images I have downloaded over a long period of time... and when I saw this little guy... the sketch from Case this sketch popped up in my mind... and this is the card I made:


I have cut a stencil for my background and added my texture effect from Martha Stewart afer tinting it with black acrylic paint.

I discovered the font : Peoni-patterns which work perfectly to cut a wide variety of backgrounds. FREE!!!

The letter 'O' represent the chevron pattern.


My gecko was cut with my Silhouette, colored with a silver marker and lightly embossed , using an embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

My sentiment says "happy birthday" in Afrikaans.

Except for Case this sketch, I will also enter my card at :

clean and simple on sunday  ~ Masculine card.

Thanks for looking!

Mooi design op je kaart! Ik ben dol op gekko's. Leuke diertjes! De chevrons achter het beestje vind ik geweldig! Ik ga het lettertype downloaden, dank je wel!

Joe, my kinders gaan mal wees oor die geitjie!! - ons het 'n magdom van die goedjies hier by ons en is mal oor hulle (en my pa het die stomme goedjies altyd doodgemaak, want hy het gese hulle bemors die mure!! My kinders sou definief nie beindruk gewees het met Oupa nie!!)
Jou kaartjie is pragtig, vrou. Al die tekstuur op die chevrons en geitjie is stunning!! Jou kleure is ook perfek gekies!! Pragtige stukkie werk!
Groete.
