Welcome Wreath

I made a Welcome sign to go on my very green wreath.  I used this wreath for Christmas, St. Patrick's Day and now as a Welcome for my door.  It has been much more versatile that I expected it to be when I purchased it.

The Welcome that I used came from the American Alphabet cartridge that was pre-loaded on my Cricut Expression 2.  I used the Fit to Page feature to get it as long as I could on a 12 x 12 piece of paper.  It is approximately 2 inches tall.  It is cut out of Purple glitter paper and the shadow is cut from a lighter purple.  Then I popped it up on paper from DCWV's The Chateau Lavender stack which was cut at 3" x 11.75".  Then I added a piece of green for the base cut at 3.5" x 12".  I added some purple and lime green flowers with gem centers.  Lastly, I put a purple ribbon tied in a bow at the top.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

#103 - Celebrate Spring
Make a project with at least three flowers

Thanks for coming by and y'all come back again soon,
