On A Roll

Hello and we have a new challenge over at Daring Cardmakers, this week our dare-host is Kathy, who has set the theme 'Rockin All Over The World'. We want we'd like you to make a Wobble Card - these are cards which have a curved base so that when you tap them they rock, or wobble from side to side.
Now what you put on your card is up to you, BUT if you're up for a bit more of a challenge, how about adding something of a pun, and giving your card a "rocking" theme too?
Rock and Roll, Rocking Horse, You Rock My World, Whisky on the Rocks, Rocket Man ....ohhh the list is (almost) endless..

For my card, I started off with a die cut circle folded in half, but decided it wasn't big enough so opted to draw around a small plate to give me some more space. I cut a smaller circle from the green Basic Grey paper and die cut the backing layers. I was going with an afternoon tea theme and this vintage digi image from Etsy was perfect.

This is the first outing of the oh-so-cute memo pins by Tim Holtz, which I used to pin my greeting and just finished the card off with ruffled ribbons and a layered flower with tissue paper and pearl string.

I'll be entering it in The Shabby Tearoom 'Pink Lemonade' challenge
