It's a Vintage Garden with Ribbons

Hi all and
A Happy Mother's Day!!

Yea! My first post for Really Reasonable Ribbons just happened to land on Mother's Day and it's perfect because Mother's Day is a sign of Spring and Lots and Lots of Flowers. Right?? I have so much to share so please read to the bottom. Okay
First, I am so happy to be a part of such a great group of ladies. They really made me feel welcomed into their group, I really couldn't have asked for a more wonderful reception. :D Thank  you Bonnie for having me as a part of your team. :D  (still smiling from ear to ear)

Second, I have a lovely group of ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) I made using a few ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. I think you all will love it. So let's get to it!! :D

ATC's are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 so I cut my base for my ATC's from chipboard and adhered the
2 1/2 inch Vintage Garden and Vintage Pink Floral Cotton Blend Ribbon to the chipboard with scor tape.
****Then I added a splash of white paint on top of each of the Cotton Blend Print Ribbon and edges.

This one I used the Vintage Pink Floral ribbon for the background &  Leaves just placed around the ATC and added my flowers. The Arianna Natural Crochet Lace is adhered with glue and I added small pearls on the side. Here you can see those so cute Pink Sweetheart Blossoms that come in the Sweetheart Blossoms mixed color pack. They are adorable! The pearls are from my stash.

Isn't it beautiful?? 

Here is the Second one -
I used Vintage Garden Cotton Blend Ribbon. You can see a little bit of the white paint on the background over the ribbon. I added another pretty rose from the Trellis Roses mixed pink tones pack, which I added a bit of white paint to the edges and spritzed with pearl spray. I adhered the beautiful Arianna Natural Crochet Lace on the side. 
The butterflies are Reminent Rubs from Tim Holtz. The pearls are from my stash.

This last one I used Vintage Garden Cotton Blend Printed Ribbons. Here I added Arianna Natural Crochet Lace on the side but folded it over on the edge of the lace behind the ATC. To Finish it off I added the cute little PinkSweetheart Blooms at the bottom, along with a few snippets of  Leaves.

Here is a Close Up. I did add wink of stella to the butterfly but it didn't show up very well. 
The words are from Reminant Rubs from Tim Holtz. The pearls are from my stash.

A lovely picture of all 3 together.
