Paper but not a card

I made this rosette wreath with pages from an old book.  I found the tutorial for this HERE.  And I love it…but it took for eva to make!  But I don’t mind keeping my hands busy while watching TV. So 1 old book and a lot of glue sticks later I have this sweet wreath hanging on my door.  And as you can tell my my blog title, I’m a HUGE Jane Austen Fan so the Silhouette is to do with that obsession. Also I added a bit of color with some Martha Stewart punch butterflies. 
I like that I can change the colors on this pretty easily and give it a different look later on. I’ll post pics when I get to that. But for now, I’m lovin it the way it is.
Thanks for taking a look!
