I have recently joined an ATC  Facebook Group  - in fact this is my first month and the theme for July is 'Roses and Pearls'.
You can enter from 1 to 5 (no more) and I struck the middle balance and made 3.  Here they are:

I used some  internet images of roses in vases and then made a very simple parchment background  for them adding extra colour in the centre oval.  I used some new tiny button brads in a toning green to fix the parchment to the ATC backs.

Now the biggest surprise to me was how wonderfully our efforts are presented by the  husband of the swop hostess Sue.    Here is how mine appeared on the Facebook page.

Wow.  They look so much better than they did when I put them in the envelope.
I can't wait to see what the theme is for August.  It is chosen by a poll.
