Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC 4

Well..I'm committed now...I can't stop playing along with the Waltzingmouse team and their fun sketches!! This week's was a doozey, a real challenge, which I love! For this challenge, I took a little freedom from the literal sketch, using a full solid circle vs. a large circle created from many little circles (good grief does that make sense??) LOL! You might want to hop on over to the Waltzingmouse Sketch blog so you can check out the sketch for yourself! :-) I knew as soon as I saw the little wreath that Claire created for the sketch that I wanted to do something similar and then...I read a wonderful paper flower tutorial on Lisa Johnson's blog...The wheels started turning! For my wreath I first used my plain circle Nestibilities to cut out a wreath shape, which acted as a base for my flowers. I then used a SU! punch to punch out a boatload of flowers. Since my flower petals were much smaller than the one's used on Lisa's tutorial, I think my flowers ended up looking a bit like a hydrangea flower....fabulous! The flowers were attached to the frame with Glossy Accents. I then added the Home Sweet Home banner, from the Sewing Box Hugs set, and finished off my wreath with the tiny heart from the same set. I also turned the flower middle into a button by poking two holes in it and pulling my twine through so I could create a bow. Oh, the designer paper is from Basic Grey. Enjoy and visit the sketch blog to see the challenge details and all of the design team's beautiful work!!
