Another Flower Has Bloomed in Heaven

Happy Friday to everyone!  As promised, I have a project to share with you today.  This is a sympathy card I made for a family at church.  The wife lost her mother suddenly a few weeks ago.  And it is also for the new and exciting die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  We were to make something using a cameo or silhouette.  I have used the sentiment "Another Flower Has Bloomed in Heaven" for a sympathy card once before, and I really love the softness of a silhouette for the sentiment.  Here are the details:

Size:  A2
I rounded the corners of the bottom of the card to try to give it a little extra softness.
Card Stock: Recollections and DCWV Linen Closet (embossed using my Cuttlebug)
Patterned paper:  DCWV Linen Closet
Sentiment:  (Half of which is on the inside of the card) was computer generated, punched with a Stampin' Up punch, and layered on a Martha Stewart punched medallion and then that was layered on a EK Success label.
Silhouette:  A Child's Year Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2" (page 36 of the handbook) (I love this cartridge -- so versatile!)
Label Behind Silhouette:  Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 4" (page 50 of the handbook) (And this would probably be my all time favorite Cricut cartridge)
I used a Fiskars border punch and cut a small strip for the right side of the card and then added some brown ribbon and a Recollections mini rose, a few brown pearls, and it was done!

I hope you like it, and I hope you'll jump on over to SOUS and play along with us!

Thanks for looking and for your comments that mean the world to me!
