Simple Wreath

I have a simple window wreath to share with you today.
Those of you who follow me on facebook may remember that I had a friend over earlier this month and we worked on window all afternoon! 
Well, I didn't actually make anything myself that day, just cut out a bunch of windows, shutters, and flower boxes for her to use.  
She came up with this simple (but elegant) arrangement and I "stole" it from her and made the above card.
Here's a closer view of the wreath
Supplies used:
  •  Punches
    • Martha Stewart branch punch
    • Scalloped Daisy Border punch (Fiskars)
  • Dies
    • Small Madison window (Memory Box)
    • Small shutter (Memory Box)
    • Small widow box  (Memory Box)
  • Scallops Embossing Folder (Sizzix)
  • Distressing Background Stamp (Glitz Design)
  • Kraft Paper
  • White Pigment ink

This is stunning, Esther. I would love to see a tutorial on how you made this card.
I just came over from "Karen's Escape" where she has the nicest feature on you and your scripture projects.
Blessing hugs,

Love! What glue did you use? I find it's my Martha Stewart punches I use over and over. Probably because you give me all these ideas. Ha!

I love the new background.

I still have to find time to adhere mine to cards, but I love how yours turned out. Thanks so much for showing me how to make those wreaths! I never guessed it was that simple. :)
