My First Fusion Challenge

I love reading other card makers blogs!! One of the ways I find new blogs to read is by looking at challenge blogs that interest me and following some of the beautiful creations to their homes (boy, that sounds very stalker-ish!) I almost never participate in the challenge blogs for 2 reasons. 1-I am horrible about getting my cards photographed and loaded in a timely manner and 2-Once I see others' creations for the challenges I have a hard time getting those out of my head and coming up with something of my own. However, I really love the idea behind this new challenge blog Fusion, so I am going to try my hand at it.  The challenge is to pick either the sketch or the photo (or be very brave and combine them). Here is this weeks challenge:

And here is my card:

 
I chose to go with the photo for inspiration. I feel like I sometimes take challenges too literally, but maybe if I can do these more often my skills will sharpen.
