Tropical Shadow Box

Hi all, at the moment the sun is shining but there are an awful lot of clouds around as well, don't give much for the chances of a dry sunny day, not that I mind I have plenty to do indoors.
I wanted to do something a little different so I decided to make a shadow box, the card stock is Hunkadory silk, I used one of my fancy Spellbinder dies to cut out the centre, the papers are from the new set recently launched from Bearly Mine designs call Tropical Dreams.
Once I cut the aperture I used the centre for the inside of the box, I added Memory Box Flower Die cut and a 25mm Rose, for the outside of the box I added 2 x 15mm Taupe Roses, a bow, Memory Box Small Dragon Fly dies, Viva Decor around the aperture shape, SU Daisy Die Cut and not one but two of my beloved Tilda's, both of which I have coloured with Promarkers.  Down each side of the box I added some small flowers.
The Roses I bought from Wild Orchid Crafts, the majority of all my Roses are from Wild Orchid.
Here is a side view of the box 
Below is a view of the inside 
I would like to enter my Shadow Box into the following challenges:
Well that's it from me today I hope that you like my Shadow Box, I will be around a little later to see you all, until then have a nice day, hugs to all.
