I made this for fun this afternoon. I wanted to play with my new Memroy Box Grapevine wreath die. I cut the wreath twice with kraft paper and sponged both with Vintage Photo ink and light adhered together. I rotated the top wreath over the bottom one to make it look like a larger thicker wreath. I started making tiny little flowers with my mini flower punches. I modified the flowers by cutting out one petal and glueing back together. I know that sounds stange but I was trying to make flowers small enough and that would not look flat. I distressed the flowers and glued them together and pushed tightly down with my stylus into the mouse pad to push the petals up to create more dimension. The lavender flowers are double layered and the pink ones are only single layers. I used my 1/8" circle punch to create tiny little flowerettes to arrange around in the foliage to soften the arrangement. I adhered the wreath to the white punched layer with Glossy accents. I didn't have ribbon to match the Lavender Lace paper so I cut a thin strip of cardstock and pulled across my bone folder to soften the paper and created the loops and tails of the bow and glued into the wreath. The all white punched background looked so plain so I cut a square frame to fit inside the punched border and popped it up on mounting tape. It was the perfect addition to highlight the wreath. Check out my tutorial if you would like to know how I make my floral sprays. http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kitti...-tutoiral.html

Kittie, when I think you cannot top yourself from the last card you posted here you come with another breathtaking creation. Your cards are truly works of art. You must own everything punch, die cut, embossing folder ever made...LOL I love all your creations and have been eyeing this MB wreath die but haven't ordered it yet! Now I have to go find one in stock somewhere. Lavender is my favorite color! Please keep sharing your talent with us.
