Having some Fun with the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! A few weeks ago I picked up a small wreath at the dollar store and wanted to make it a Christmas wreath for a friend. I pulled out my Christmas cartridges and looked for a poinsettia I could do layers with and found one I liked on the Joys of the Seasons cartridge. I played around cutting out different sizes until I found the ones I liked best. For the leaves I actually used the new Art Philosophy cartridge. Hope you enjoy!!
When I die cut the banner I did it twice once on paper and once on poster board so it would be more sturdy.
