Flower Shoppe Wreath!

Hi my crafty friends!  This week at SweetSassyDiva we are doing projects with spring blooms.  For my project I decided to do a wreath made of daisies mums and some butterflies. 
I started out with designing my flowers and butterflies from Flower Shoppe and Hannah Montana on my Gypsy.  Then I got a straw wreath form from Hobby Lobby and wrapped it with shear ribbon.  Sorry, I thought that I took a pic of the wreath wrapped but I didn't.  So next I got to cutting my daisies, and I cut many of them in different sizes.  I started with one size and then went down a quarter of an inch for each layer.  I had many sizes to work with.  I then scored down the center of each petal on each layer. 
I rolled, pinching my score lines on each of my layers and stacking and gluing.  I had all my centers cut in yellow and all ready rolled and glue.
And here is what my largest daisy mum looks like.
I then cut out a lot of leaves in different sizes using a leaf from Flower Shoppe and a branch of leaves from Storybook.  I probably won't use all these leaves, but I wanted to have an assortment to work with once I started assembling my wreath.
Here is the final project all assembled and hanging on my door.  Please don't look to hard at my bow, I'm not much of a bow maker!!! lol And I apologize for the bad photo, pic was taken at night.    I think my wreath looks pretty good, just screaming spring and I am tickled pink with how it turned out!!!  I hope that the DT inspires you this week to work on a spring project with flowers!!
