toilet roll inside

This is for /tickledpinkstampschallenges use a piece of cardboard. Mine is in the middle believe it or not . It is also the inside of the toilet roll tube. I actually got a good idea first of all I used my versa mark ink pad on the inside of my embossing folder ran it though my sizzix machine with cardboard inside, then covered the card board with embossing powder heat gunned it. Not used my heat gun for a long time . Flowers are from wild orchid, ribbons and charms had  for a long time . Oh yes the background was just plain black sprayed it with spray and sparkle silver.
