Cheery Lynn Wreath

This is a card I made for several Verve challenges on Splitcoaststampers using Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die.  Sandy from Cheery Lynn Designs blog asked if they could use it this week for their "Red and Green" challenge!
I cut up parts of the flourish using various sized leaves and swirly bits and attached them to a circle base which I'd cut using two Nestie circles, one slightly larger than the other.  I used my hot glue gun to adhere them so that I could arrange them with some dimension.  This didn't take as long as it might look, and you could make the wreath thinner or thicker depending on your preference!
This is my favorite flourish die and I love coming up with different ways to use it!
Supplies include:
Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die
Verve Kind Words
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles Large, Small
SU Basic Black cardstock
SU dp
My Minds Eye dp
Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Butchers twine
copic pen
