Doily Wreath Tag

If you have been reading my blog the last few days
you might have read that I have been trying to squeeze in
a few of my "favorite" challenges as time allows.
So, I have another challenge I did for today
at Cheery Lynn Designs "Tag You're It".

When I pulled out my storage notebook of CLD dies,
I had something else entirely in mind,
but seeing the Polynesian Sails die that comes with the cutest
little doily tucked inside it, I imagined making a wreath with it!

I used the die shown, cut my little doily and used a 1" punch to
punch the center out, making it into a wreath!

The teeny, tiny "Poinsettias" were cut from red foil using 
CLD "Tiny Flower Kit"...perfect sizes for my wreath!!

I added a heart trim along the bottom using CLD Expandable Tiny Borders.
The paper as well as the banner across my wreath are Lawn Fawn Snowy Day.

I finished by stamping to and from across the bottom (I plan to use this for a gift)
and added the red satin ribbon tie on and bow!!

Entering in the following favorite challenges:

Well, this is just so cute! It makes a darling wreath and I'm going to have to take another look at some of my dies. Not that I seem to be making cards hand over fist lately... Have I mentioned I can't wait till retirement?
