Tomic challenge dt

This is so exciting as this is my first posting officially for the dt on Tomic.  Our challenge this week is "Round"
I love having to think about what i am gonna come up with, and for me it wasnt so much about making a round card, but making something with a bit of a twist.
Yes this is a round easel, but look closer::::::: my little roccking Tilda, ROCKS!!
I used the coin mechanism to make sure that my image would rock.

Papers: prima and Kaiser, Basil basics
Embellishments:From my stash, pearls, flowers and lace
Stamps:  do crafts butterfly, hero arts flourish around the edges of my image and Rocking Tilda
punches:  Marianne die for the leaves, nesties to cut my image and card, ek success for the inside.
Coloring and inks:  copics, memnto tuxedo black, Eggplant pigment ink for embossing my butterfly, distress ink:walnut stain for the edges of my image, and star dust stickles for the touch of glam
p,s: gonna enter this card for:
Totally Tilda:  ribbons, lace, pearls and swirls, it was pointed out that someone couldnt see the ribbon, it is the first layer of my flowers, a shimmery ornganza ribbon gathered to make the first layer of my flower.
