Flower wreath with Cricut flowers

I actually had a day off in my hectic schedule and what did I do ????? 
Went and player with ink, cardstock, glitter (no surprise there) and the Cricut with the 
CTMH Artiste cartridge.
My darling husband was dispatched to Michaels for a foam wreath form and some pearl headed pins and this is what I made :O)

 First of all I wrapped the white foam wreath base in Holiday Red ribbon which gave it a lovely shimmer.
 I cut over eighty flowers - some from Colonial White cardstock, some from Ruby cardstock - I then sponged some of  the Colonial white one's with Ruby ink and some with Cranberry ink to give them different tones and shades.I then rolled them into the flower shape and used Liquid glass and glitter on them.
I then secured them in place with the pearl headed pins
Here is the wreath about 80% complete 
And here it is complete - I wondered about filling the wreath with more flowers but then
decided that I actually like being able to see some of the red ribbon shimmering through the spaces.
Hope you like it as much as I do :O)
Love  Sara x
