Spring Flowers

Good morning folks, this is my first post for the day (another will be popping up soon!) and you'll notice that I'm fully into Spring mode at the moment as I have another flowery spring creation to share with you here.
The reason for this one is the new Polka Doodles challenge today which has the theme of Spring Flowers so you could either use just flowers or add some to your creation as I have done. Mine is a little wall hanging decoration which I made for Nikky as a sample for the latest Cherryblossom Lane CD and if you caught the recent shows, you might have spotted this on the counter.

To make the wreath, I cut a scalloped circle of grey board and covered this with peach polka dot paper. I then printed out a variety of flowers and leaves from the CD together with the cute hugging bunnies and a butterfly.
I cut them all out (whilst listening to my ipod!) and assembled the flowers and leaves on a second scalloped circle with the centre circle cut out and the resulting frame covered with green patterned paper. I added the butterfly and then sandwiched some yellow wired ribbon between the layers to make a hanging loop.
I added the sweet bunny friends and the text which I printed out, die cut and added brads to.

Hope to see you there and will be back a bit later on!
Have a great day.
Fliss xx
