Here is a close up of the SVG I used.  I decided to create a shadow layer for it, so it will open like a card. 
  Added the buttons tied with Americana Baker's twine.

Vintage Lady Card with Gecko Galz and Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello Peeps!!
If you are a regular follower of mine you know I have taken the summer off from crafting to get some things done around the yard and house :0)  Today it is my turn to post at Really Reasonable Ribbon....and I have a vintagey card that I would like to share with you.
Nothing makes a card more vintagey than some beautiful lace, ribbons and flowers from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon and Fabby Vintage Images from Gecko Galz!!
 The Digi flowers are from Optic Illusions.
I used some foam tabs to elevate my focal image, all edges were distressed with Ranger's Frayed Burlap distress ink.  I even used a touch of Martha's Yard Art Glitter. 
Above is a close up of the adorable little bows that I made with the pink polka dot organza and my Bow it all tool!  You can also see the Bay Leaf Seam binding peeking out under my focal image.  I used my Perfect layer rulers to create the mats for the piece.  
I used two of my favorite laces from Really Reasonable Ribbon...the Pink Crochet and 1/4 natural crochet laces!!  LOVE them!!  I also tied a bow out of 1/2 inch light pink wrinkle ribbon and topped it with a deep ivory mulberry rose!
In the upper right of my card I added a simple antique button tied with cotton candy baker's twine.  I love the Bay Leaf Seam binding  bow!!
One last look at the whole card :0)

Thank you for visiting!!

Hugs!!

I am so excited today is our first day of Summer Vacation.  The boys are sleeping in and I am headed out to my yard to do some much needed "clearing of the weeds"...lol.
When we first moved in I thought having these large long flower beds would be fun, well 10 years later I have tons of weeds and some of the flowers are just coming up everywhere.  Two years ago I thought I would have a landscape company come in and move some things.  Problem was I was not home when they came...so things are not quite the way I like.....so my plan for this summer is to put all right...lol.
So..you may not see me much here on my blog or in the online communities...but I am still around and will be popping in here and there.

Thank you for visiting!!
Hugs!!
