Pink Magnolia

I have made this card for this weeks CD Sunday Challenge - Exotic Birds and Blooms - you can use either if you don't have both.  Most of the DT have used Joanna Sheen's Eastern Treasures CD - I think this must be the only Joanna Sheen CD I don't have, so I have used my Ooh La La - Carnival of Colour CD and this is my card:

The Oval Pyramid image and the papers are both from the CD and I have used some gold card stock from Create and Craft.  I cut the border from the card stock and one of the papers with my Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities die.  I wanted to create an elegant look and so the only embellishments added are some gold Pearls - on reflection I think perhaps I should have mounted the image a little higher and added a ribbon along the bottom.

This is the inside of my card that I have decorated to complement the front, you can also see the pyramid layers in this photograph:
