Basics & Beyond ~ Wonderful Day

My friends, Catherine, Chupa and Maureen, are launching a new class today called Basics & Beyond.   Boy do I wish this class had been around a few years ago when I was learning how to design & create cards.

Click here to see what the class is all about.  :)  I've already used some of the tips I picked up in the class to put together today's card.

I was also inspired by the following challenges:

CAS*ology: Paint

SSS Wed. Challenge Blog: Pearls
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog
The Card Concept: Floral

Not sure if you would consider this CAS or Clean & Layered since I added pearls.  What do you think?

I have no clue how it should be classified, but I know I love the rainbow look, and the 3 dimensional quality of it.
