Teddy Bo Challenge is Shaped Cards

Hello again all!  Second post for today so if you're looking for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge you can scroll down to the previous post or click here.

I created this card for the Teddy Bo Challenge this this time was 'shaped cards'.  Now... I've never made a shaped card.  I've wanted to for ages, but just didn't take the leap.  I really don't have any of the right tools to easily make a shaped card so I kept putting it off.  Well... the Teddy Bo Challenge made me do it as entries for the DT call had to complete the challenge.  UGH!!  So... introducing my very first shaped card...

Now... let me tell you what, this was quite a struggle!!!  It's sadly taken me all day to finish this card!!  I cut out my circle card, then tried this, then tried that to get the other layers to look right!!  My nestie circles were too small to make it look right, so I tried a doily.  It was too small too so I tried two doilies... then three.  That's where I stopped.  So I did a bunch of sponging on the doilies and the nestie circle, added some ribbon, roses and pearls and called it good.  I know it's not the best shaped card ever, but maybe not too bad for a first try??
