An a-ha moment!

Did you ever have one of those ideas that you think is positively brilliant, only to find that someone else has already thought of it?  After spending days working on a project, that is exactly what happened!

I decided to post the photo anyway, since after all, my version is a bit different than that which came with this week's issue of the Cricut Chirp!  So, without further ado, here is my Valentine's Day wreath.

I started with heart shaped styrofoam purchased at Joanne's.  Using the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge, I cut Fun 1 in a variety of sizes.  The largest red roses are cut at 5", all the small cream colored one are cut at 2".  I inked the edges of the 5" roses with Fired Brick Distress Ink to give them some more dimension.  I rolled them all with my Hybrid Petal Roller from Imaginesce.  Linky  I used my hot glue gun to close them up.  I attached them to the wreath using straight pins.  I used pearl headed pins for the red roses, and ordinary pins for the cream roses.  I cut a piece of ribbon from my stash to create a hanger, and adhered it with straight pins.
