The Sunday CD challenge - Pearls and Swirls

What a lovely day here in Somerset and no rain,  we seem to get one fine day and then half dozen days with rain.  I am going out tomorrow so its bound to rain on me, as it does every time I go out,  no wonder I cant get rid of my cold.

Today I bring you my card for this weeks Sunday CD challenge,  its Pearls and Swirls this week,  I had so many ideas and until I started the card well this is what I ended up with.
I used the Art Deco Timeless Keepsakes, somehow this challenge said to me Art Deco,    I printed out three images and matted them on gold miri board which has not come out very well,   perhaps because I took the photo in the sun.  I put the middle image raised up on 3d stickers so its give a bit of height.  I found this paper from my stock and it leaned its way nicely with the swirly pattern.  I added two white roses,  plus gold peel off swirls and a white hand made bow in the top corner.  The pearls are put in each corner of the middle image and two at the top of the side images.
I had a great surprise yesterday and I feel on top of the world,   I had a very late birthday present of a silver dollar, from my penfriend Lou in America.   Thank you Lou you have made my year.
My silver dollar was in my purse where I have kept it since I was given it when I was 21,   when we went to Majorca my purse was stolen and with it the silver dollar,  after all the years of travelling I learnt one lesson don't take it with you.  She found a 1974 silver dollar, and this will be put in my purse  I was told when I was given it that keeping it in my purse meant I would always have money,  and it will stay home when I go abroad.   I don't want to lose it again.   I never thought I would ever get another.
I hope the sun is shinning where ever you are.
Take care
