Cute Card Thursday

I have to admit, when I first saw this sketch I was a little skeptical! (Nothing against the designer, but it was so out of my league!) However, that's what these challenges are all about...getting out of your comfort zone sometimes!

A little side note about the crocheted flower-I had seen flowers like this is stores, but couldn't make myself pay what they were asking. My husband's aunt is very quick with her hands and is always making nifty little things that I could NEVER do! So, I emailed her a picture to see if she could make them and VOILA! I got a couple of red ones in the mail. Perfect...So, I begged for more! :) Next thing I know, I got an assorted dozen roses delivered! THANKS NINA!!!
Took the sketch through to the inside.
