Cheery Lynn Designs Floral Wreath


I was inspired by a wreath done by KittieKraft to try and make my own using Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  So I die cut a bunch of Fanciful Flourish and Pair of Ferns and Cherry Blossoms.  I created the base for my wreath using 2 XL Circle Stackers Nesting dies, that I layered on top of each other before running them through my Vagabond.  It created a perfect ring base.  I also cut a bunch of dimensional leaves but decided not to use them. 

To create the wreath, I glued the ferns all the way around the wreath.  Next came the Cherry Blossoms, then I cut up the Fanciful Flourish and added pieces here and there.  I added a bow that I colored with my Copic marker to match and some Viva Decor Pearl pen accents.  The DP I used on the background and the flowers is from the SEI Corinne 6x6 paper pad.  Finished size is 6" square.
