Vintage Ladies in the Garden Card

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a Great Day!
I am hopefully having a great time in Texas at the
Gecko Galz Retreat.
Today I am sharing a card that I created for the
Gecko Galz: In the Garden Challenge
Really Reasonable Ribbon:  Flowers & Ribbon Challenge.

I used this months Ephemera Set "In the Garden" by Gecko Galz.
I also used a floral Digital Paper pack that I designed.
which you can find in my Etsy here.
Of course Yummy Ribbons, Trims and Flowers from 
Really Reasonable Ribbon!!

I created a card base with ivory card stock.  I simply cut a sheet of 8.5 by 11 paper in half, to create two card bases.
I then cut my pink floral paper 4 1/8" by 5 3/8"
Then I cut a 2" strip of the cream and blue green script paper and placed it on my card.  
I layered the
I cut out the GG images, and used one of my papers behind the larger one to create a 1/8 inch matte, leaving a 1/2" matt at the bottom edge.  Candi Fix it Foam Pads were used to elevate it and the oval image.  I added a bit of Arianna Natural Crochet Lace then wrapped it with Cotton Candy Baker's Twine and tied a bow.  Then  I layered Light Celery 5/8" Crochet Lace5/8" Ivory Crochet Lace and Delicate Rose Pink Grosgrain.  
 Pink LeavesBaby Pink Mulberry Roses,  Deep Ivory Mulberry Roses and Pink Mulberry Roses were also used on my large and small focal images.  Sandra Crochet lace and Oyster Baker's Twine are what I wrapped around the smaller oval image.
Above you can see how I used the mulberry flowers and added a piece of 1/4" Silver Gray Organza across the top of my card and created a double bow with my Bow it All tool.

I Inked all the edges with Ranger's Frayed Burlap, and added bit of Arbor Glitter from Art Glitter.
