Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #63

Good evening!  The card I have to share today is one I've had in my mind for nearly a week and I finally found the time to get downstairs and get it made.  The challenge this past week over at Die Cuttin Divas is a sketch challenge.  Here's the sketch we were asked to follow:

I just recently got the Flower Shoppe cartridge.  I've seen so many wonderful creations using this cartridge recently and I decided it was one I just had to have.  When I saw this sketch, I thought a flower from Flower Shoppe would be a great addition to this card.  Because my flower turned out to have so much dimension to it, it's definitely not one that will be going through the mail.  This card will be going to my sweetie's step-mother.  I plan to decorate a craft bag as a pseudo-envelope for this card.  Perhaps you'll be seeing that post sometime soon.  :)  Thanks for coming by to take a look at my card and have a wonderful week!
