Card Patterns #100 and Joan's Gardens Challenge

TGIF!  It was such a busy week!  At the last minute, I am sharing a card I made for last Saturday's Card Patterns Sketch #100.  I hope I will get it posted before the deadline!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

This is also for Weekly Challenge #5 over at Joan's Gardens' blog where this week's requirements were:
- use coral (pink) and green
- use a birthday sentiment
- use vintage paper
- make a handmade or punched flower

My card base is SU Old Olive.  My patterned papers are from three Webster's Pages Petite Papers packs: Lullaby Lane/Life's Portrait, Hollywood Vogue/WonderFALL and Spring Market/Yacht Club/Country Estate.  The labels frame and flourishes are from Gina K. Designs Lovely Labels 2 set.  The sentiment is from GKD Arranged With Love.  I made my own flower from coral CS using a Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. I
added a layer of Webster's pale peach netting under the flower and I created the leaves with scraps of Webster's green netting that I twisted and shaped.  A few pearls and an olive satin bow finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
