An eternal floral wreath - pretty in Prima and vintage

If you follow my blog, you know by now that I love flowers - in scrapbooking and in painting so I have purchased quite a few Prima and vintage flowers over the years - I have used a lot but then I end up with ones not yet used or sometimes I demolish a layout that isn't quite up to my standards and I save the bits and pieces. I used to keep all of these miscellaneous flowers in a box but then I thought why not put them on display and enjoy them every day.
So I cut some corkboard that I had purchased at a thrift store into a wreath shape and began to pin(with pearl headed pins) the flowers on in a color wheel formation.
I love it and hope that you do too!
thanks for stopping by,
Chris
