BBTB2 CHALLENGE LIFE'S A BEACH LIZARD. 'RELAX'















































Hello everyone
It's Monday and that means it's time for another challenge over at BBTB2! Lori from the DT chose the cut for this week , the lizard from Life's A Beach cart.
I think this little lizard looks like a gecko (not that I know much about lizards!) so as I wanted to make her orange I checked on the internet and found that young leopard Gecko's have a lot of orange in them so I was good to go!
I made a leaf shaped card in DS using Give A Hoot cart, all the papers are Pink Petticoat dowload papers and pop dotted and layered. My gecko is cut at 5" 3 times, twice in white card and once in orange glitter card and I adhered all the layers together for a chipboard look before pop dotting her onto the leaf where she is relaxing hence the Relax sentiment which is cut from Paper Pups cart shadow in white and base in hot pink glitter card. I used DCWV Spring Glitter mat stack for my glittered cuts and have to say it cuts like a dream on my Cricut.I tied some rafia around the stem and some orange gem stones and some hot pink gems to her toes! My hot pink gems are clear gems coloured with permanent marker as I had run out of pink!!
Pop over to BBTB2 and check out the other luscious lizard creations from the DT and show us your creations too we love to see everyone's take on the cuts each week!

Just adorable Julie. We have tons of geckos in our yard and they really do come in almost every color (well, maybe not purple!). Love the shaped card - fitting for the gecko! Hugs...Kris
