Power and Spark Challenge

Today's card was made very quickly for this challenge.  Not that it was easy, it was just that some cards show up on your craft room table just like you planned then.  Other... not so much.  This was one of those that I was able to get the ideas in my head on to the paper and liked it the first time. 
                                                              Here is the challenge.
We simply were to use one of these sketches. As soon as I saw it, I knew the one tat I wanted to do. I have used this die many times and so I thought, why not again.
Here is my card.
The ingredients: Gina K  Designs card stock in Moonlit Fog, and Ivory
A layer of beautiful embossed vellum that is from a scrapbook kit that I bought ages ago.
Die-namics dies, Stitched Fishtail Frame and Word boxes, The single rose from Power Poppy Everything's Even Rosier stamp set. Copic markers, some crystal sequins and rhinestones splattered for accent.

I took a picture of this card with two different backgrounds and could not decide on which one that I should use, so I put both of them on my post.  I think I really like the one with the pink background to enhance the rose.  What do you think?

This card will be entered in the Power and Spark challenge at Power Poppy
