Color the cross with pencils. One the other sheet of cardstock die cut the small circle in the middle. Center the larger die on top and trace a faint line around the circle. Stamp the flowers in lilac, grape, and plum on the line in groups of three in five spots. Stamp the leaf in green, rotating the stems toward the flowers, then stamp the pussywillow in pistachio, rotating the stamps towards the flowers. Fussy cut out the wreath.
