21 March technique

Erica over at has given us a challenge for today..
                 TECHNIQUE using flowers BUT NOT in a vase..  

When thinking of what I wanted to make for this awesome creative TECHINQUE with flowers NOT in a vase..  what was I to do???  so.. off to Micheal's for a little creativity looking.  and whalaa.. there it was..  NOW to put this into a cute Home Decor...

using an old favorite.. Walk in My Garden cricut cartridge. Using the flowers on overlay 4 & 6  cutting flowers out at 1.64 h & 3.25 w   up to 2.32 w & 2.15 h .   LEAVES were cut using the Home Decor cricut cartridge and cut at 2.57w & 2.41h and smaller   Inked around the edging to give it a lil pop of color.

the patterned paper is from best creations Inc called A Walk in the Garden. (more info under pic)  You can purchase this and more at Erica's store at

**The pretty berry Garland is from Ashland signature series as well as the butterflies from Ashlands  too.  Both bought at Micheals.  The styro-foam base is covered with brown paper bag, cut into strips, wrinkled, laid flat and then put on the cylinder base glued down using hot glue. 

I just strung the garland around in pieces, hot glued it down added flowers and some leaves, a little extra was the rhinestones added to the center of the flowers.

What do you think???  This is my first time making this.

This is part of the pretty paper I used. it is double sided.  from Best Creations, Inc.  A Walk In The Garden.  (item number AW008)
