How Beautiful a day....

I had the idea for this card a few days ago as I was drifting off to sleep and finally had time today to make it.  It is for the sketch challenge over on CPS and for Gina's Inspire challenge on StampTV.  I used one of my all time favorite stamps set from Gina k Designs A Year of Flowers.  I started off by making the floral arrangment and then cutting it out.  For the pink background piece I tried a new to me technique called Mother of Pearl.  Beate had a video a few days ago on how to do it and I was wanting to try it.  I wish you could see it better in the photo, but it was very difficult to photograph.  Thank you for stopping by.
