Not a Rectangle!

Hello, today I have a card to share that I've created for MelJen's challenge- not a rectangle.  Since I have always done either rectangles or squares, I thought I'd try something new.  So here is my very first circle card!
What do you think?  I used an image from Cuddly Buddly and cut it out with a pair of scissors.  To mask the "mistakes" I inked the edges of the scallop a bit with some black ink.  I love white sheep so I only coloured the flower and the "grass".  I layered this on some embossed green cardstock and a doily then adhered it to the card that is from some embossed cardstock.  All the embossing kinda disappeared with this layout so I used a distress ink pad from Tim Holtz in sage to bring out the patterns a bit.  After that the doily looked a bit too white so I decided that it would be nice blue! So I inked that.  I added a couple of eyelets to the edge of the card and threaded a ribbon through it and finished it off in a bow.  I added some lovely blue/green pearls and then I used my silver ink pad to brush on some sparkle to the outer ring of the card.  (sorry it doesn't show in the pic.) All in all, I thought it was fun!  Thanks for dropping by! I love all your comments! makes me want to share more! LOL
I'm also entering this card in Sweet Stampin's challenge - Sparkle and Bling

I don't do too many shapes other than squares/rectangles either. Creature of habit I guess. :-) You did a wonderful job on your card Jennifer. Love the layering and the image is really cute. Hugs!
