Card Inspiration

I thought I'd share a card that I created recently for a guest designer spot at Let's Capture These Sketches.  My card was chosen as the winner in a sketch challenge recently and I, in turn, was asked to be the guest designer!  The sketch was beautiful and I tried to do justice to it by creating a card that was equally as nice!
Here is the sketch
Here is my card
     I had this paper from Kaisercraft's Lush collection and I thought would be perfect for the look that I was going for.  I also decided that it was time to try out the Print & Cut feature on my Silhouette.  The little girl on the front was done using that feature.  I am so amazed at how many features the Silhouette has, most of which I have yet to use!  I also cut the flowers using the Silhouette.  I was very happy with how it turned out and had fun putting it all together.  My guest spot was posted here if you'd like to look at it or play along in future weeks.  They have card and layout sketches to choose from.  
     Thanks for stopping by today!  Let me know what you think by leaving a comment!
