Vintage Dragon Fly Card

Hello Friends!!
Today I would like to share with you a set of cards that I made using some fabulous ribbons and other goodies from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon!
and 
Gecko Galz!
Card One

I created a digital collage using this months Darling Dragonflies and Book Cover's Collections from Gecko Galz.  I also added some pansies, roses and tiny white flowers from the Graphic Fairy.
I used the crochet lace, cream with polkadots and Brown Diamond ribbon's from this month's gorgeous Ribbon Assortment.  I just love this assortment!
Monthly Ribbon Club, Domestic
I started out with a Cream colored 5 by 7 card stock base.  I then used the digital papers and images from Gecko Galz to create my card.  All my edges were inked with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress inks.
Here is a close up of the center.  I used Scor Tape to adhere all my paper layers and most of my ribbons.  
I layered the Brown Diamond Ribbon, and cream with polka dots ribbons on top of the Pink Crochet Lace.  Then topped them off with a button from the new Vintage Button Bonanza set from RRR.
I tied a lovely bow with the Cotton Candy Baker's Twine.  I tucked some Natural Crochet lace under my bingo layer both at the top and bottom of the card.
At the top of my card I also used more Crochet lace from this month's assortment and more Cotton Candy Baker's Twine.
Card 2
I used a lace punch from Martha Stewart and punched some scraps of paper which I tucked in between layers on both cards.  Glitter was added to finish off the vintage look.
I used the Crochet lace and Pink Satin ribbon from this month's assortment across my image.  Then buttons from the Vintage Button Bonanza were tied with the Cotton Candy Baker's Twine and placed on the top. I adhered the button with Designer dries clear glue.  I LOVE LOVE this new button set!  I also used the brown ribbon with Pink stars to create a little bow on my card. 
I also used the same image, to create a tiny gift tag.
Cotton Candy Baker's twine, crochet lace and the cream with polkadots (this month's assortment) were used on my tiny tag. 
One more look at the finished cards.

I hope that you have a great day!!
