UStamp with Dawn and Friends - "O"h My Wreath

Wow, two posts in two days...I am sharing with you today my project that I designed for UStamp with Dawn and Friends Oh My Word! And Oh my I did have a little challenge or two for this one - I designed a Wreath out of a wooden "O" - yes OH!
I used my Big-Shot Die Cutting Machine to the max by cutting out all the leaves and then texturing all the leaves with the Impressions Embossing Folder and then for greater depth I used my sponge dauber around all those leaves and butterflies. Not a quick project but I think a very effective and stunning finished creation.
Stamp Set: Occasional Quotes
Cardstock: Old Olive, More Mustard, Rose Red, Baja Breeze
Ink: Old Olive, More Mustard, Rose Red, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Leaves #2 Originals Dies, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Butterfly Extra-Large Punch, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon

I started with this wooden "O"

... and ended up with a very colourful wreath

... and here is a close up of all the finer detail
