We were asked to make lovely wreaths for today's Ways to Use it challenge. I worked on this on and off all day. My pal, Polly just sent me some wreath die cuts and I used the red one for the base of my wreath (thanks Pol!) Then I used the Crafty Ann flourish die and made four die cuts. I cut those all apart and spread them around the wreath.
For the door, I used the Madison Window die twice and cut the bottom off one and the top off the other, then put them together for the door. I used some gingham ribbon for the curtains. Lastly I added some gold brads and a red bow to the wreath. The wreath turned out a little big for the door, lol, but it does seem "Merry"!

WOW!!!! This is so fantastic. This is one of my favourite background papers, it sets the scene for that amazing door you engineered. The wreath is perfection my friend. Kathleen everything here is wonderful. I expect this unique door is going to be featured on many cards from now on. Straight into My Favs. WOW once more.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
