I took it outside and put it on my fence

So for my Project I found a Fabric Garland Over at, Free and Pretty things for you,   Keren Had made the most Pretty Flower garland with fabric I have ever seen...So I thought I can do that...Fabric is not my Main craft so I knew that It was going to be a challenge for me. I found coordinating green fabric for the leaves, and  for the flower I chose my favorite Color (PURPLE). I chose Cindy loo Cricut Cartridge with the 4 leaves(page.65) with border shift and because they were different sizes it worked out well.they were cut at w/3.25- H/5.13. I used my 12x24 mat and filled it using the gypsy. The flowers were cut From Accent Essentials (page 55)< Accent24> And I just cut all the petal's off...I used Hot glue to assemble the flowers and Cut small peices of jute for the leaves and garland. Bowe's are white baby Rick Rack and the sun is from some old sun paper I had hanging around my craft room. I used a $1.00 Stamp from joann for the sun face and heat embossed it with purple embossing powder. I so would love to win a E2, It could be an Early, Early birthday Present!! Thanks for stopping by and Have A great Weekend!!
