Christmas Poinsettia Wreath

I've been thinking about hanging Christmas decorations and this is what developed......I made a start on it yesterday but it had to dry properly before I could finish it off.  I've cut out 2 hoops of heavy duty card in a wonderful Aubergine colour, I've then used a Marianne poinsettia die in 2 sizes and cut 5 of each in both the aubergine colour and to contrast I've used the rainbow shimmer silver mirri, I've also used a little snowflake punch to punch out the 'stamens' in a shimmery lemon paper.  I have then alternated the poinsettia's around one of the hoops, left a gap at the bottom to add a large silver bow and Christmas sentiment....once dry I have added a long piece of ribbon to the back of the hoop so it can be hung, then covered it up with the other hoop - which also adds to the sturdiness or thickness of the finished item, which in this case, is roughly 10" in diameter.  You could make this in any size or colour, just let your imagination run freeeeeeeee.
I do hope you like it and may want to give it a go - enjoy :o)
