Vintage Challenge

I am running down to the wire this week getting my challenge card in for Joan's Garden. I'm not sure where the time goes any more. Joan always challenges me and this week is no different. One of the requirements was a vintage look and I am not very comfortable with vintage. I don't think I have the right kind of tools for vintage. But here's what I came up with.
The requirements for the challenge were:
1. Use Coral/pink and Green for your colors
2. A Birthday Sentiment
3. Vintage Paper
4. Handmade or Punch flower
There a little green and pink in there. The background paper is from Webster's Pages. The flower I hand-crocheted; my first but not my last attempt at crocheting flowers. I've decided that I am going to try to crochet more flowers during my lunch hour at work. I added a really cool button as the flower center. The picture doesn't do it justice. I added a few leaves to give it some depth. I really love the look of hand-made flowers.
Hope your week is going well. Come back tomorrow for a new challenge at Delightful Challenges!
 Hope you stay warm on this very cold night!
