CASE Study #32 and Joan's Garden's #11

Good morning!  I can't believe it's been a week since I was able to post here!  What a busy week it's been!  Now we have wonderful friends visiting for the weekend so we are going to be on the go all the time!  Before everyone gets up, I am sharing a card I made for two challenges this week.  First it is for CASE Study Challenge #32.  We had another gorgeous card from March Muse, Julee Tilman, to be inspired by. 

Here is Julee's card:

My card is also for Weekly Challenge #11 on Joan's Gardens' blog which this week had the following requirements:
-use peach and teal
-use butterflies
-use something frilly

Here is my card for both challenges:

I tried to keep the layout and the vintage feel of Julee's design.  I changed the colors, papers, sentiment and embellishments.  My card base is SU Sage Shadow and the layers are SU Groovy Guava.  The peach and teal patterned paper is from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection.  I cut out three butterflies from the patterned paper and added a few tiny chocolate pearls to their bodies.  The die cuts are from the new Spellbinders Parisian Accents set.  The birthday sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs set, Picture It.  My "something frilly" is the ruffled lace border at the bottom. A shabby seam binding bow and a a few Kaiser pearls finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a fantastic weekend and see you soon!
