A Wreath and a Kit, a "Two-Fer" Post!

 I made this over the weekend with the new K & Company Americana paper line.  I made a bazillion rossettes using my Tim Holtz die, and then used stickers from the paper line to create the centers.  I made the bottom award ribbon following directions I found on the Crate Paper blog.
Here is a closeup of the award ribbon.   All of the ribbons were in my stash.  I bought the wreath from Jo Ann's and used hot glue to attach.  I think this will look wonderful on my front door in July!

Now, for the June Counterfeit Kit...

Here is the original kit.  You can find it here on Burlap and Buttercups.  I love it for the beautiful pastel florals, I think it is very feminine.  I don't usually use a lot of floral-girlie stuff, this will be fun.
Here is my counterfeit kit.

 My papers are from October Afternoon, Creative Imaginations, Echo Park, and DCWV.
This shows the backs of some of my papers, more choices!
 I chose these cardstock colors, by Bazzill and Recollections.
Here are my goodies.  I punched some paper butterflies with a MS punch, I am going to use my alphabet die that I have had and never used...the ribbons and buttons are unused from my previous counterfeit kits.  I also thought that the Recollections flowers were the perfect colors for this kit.   I am also excited to use my Heidi Swapp mirror butterflies in this kit.

Now, what to make!
Stay Crafty!

Great colors - some of your papers look really similar to the original kit, but your different color choices really stand out! I like those sheer flowers, too.
