Memory Box Catalina Wreath used to make an Aperture

Good morning bloggers :)
Well after trying to post this project in the early hours of this morning I had to give up (and go to bed :lol:) due to losing internet connection.
It's still playing up this morning, is it down to the blustery weather?

So perusing through Pinterest recently, I happened upon THIS different way of using the Catalina Wreath Die and so of course I just had to try it out.

Using a blank cardstock to fit a chosen card blank, I die-cut the wreath in the centre, removed the die-cut so as to sponge the colour on before resiting it and secured with DST.
Stamped my greeting from JustRite (Christmas Inner Thoughts - CL-04625) onto matching cardstock and placing behind the aperture with foam fixings.
A second cut was made from which I snipped off a few flowers to add as dimension.
Finally, finishing off with Cosmic Shimmer white PVA managing to apply some tiny blobs on the smallest stem buds.

I'm pleased with how this one turned out with no faff and pretty speedy to create ;)
Credit goes to SMITTEN for the inspiration!

Many thanks for stopping by Diane xxx
