Vintage Wreath

Good morning!! I wanted to drop by and share with you a project I made.
I have recently discovered Magnolia stamps and have gone head over hills over the vintage look they have!!  I am sooooo  AMAZED at the cards and projects people make with them! I only own 3 Magnolias as of right now... but after the holidays are over I will MOST defiantly be buying more ; )
anyhoo.... I ordered me a Magnolia INK magazine last week and I finally got it and was so inspired by all the cool stuff that I saw inside! The first things I saw, was a wreath made with Tim Holtz  die cuts and mini magnolia stamps sooo adorable. Although I don't have any mini magnolia's  (YET!) I made mine with out.. I also used Tim Holtz pine cone die and another floral die from Tim Holtz ( not sure of the names)  I must say.. I'm pretty excited and Impressed with how it turned out.
Last week I had a super fun evening with my friends Dana, Cheryl and Shay we had a girls night IN and made different types of flowers and played around with die cuts all night!! So that made this wreath even easier to make because almost everything I used as pre-made from that night!
I will be entering this wreath into Wild orchid Challenge this week, the challenge is a child's Christmas. My kids LOVE Christmas decorations!
also entering it to Whimsy Stamps challenge 15: flower power
I have used green  Raffia ribbon and red flowers from WOC.

These flowers were made by putting a ton of flower layers together with a decorative brad, sprayed with water and crunched! then I added sparkly spritz ( hard to see in picture) and let dry overnight.
