Tattered Floral Challenge

T!m posted the tattered floral challenge and here is my go at it!
I used the mini tattered blossoms.

These are earrings . I wanted to make them wearable and not too gaudy, so I can give them as a gift.
I love having a full gift drawer!

I cut 2 of each petal round, 4 total out of vintage linen, that I sprayed with starch and ironed.

I stamped with Vintage photo with one of SA T!m script stamps, sponged on some Distress Ink,Vintage Photo, Mustard and Lipstick, and outlined the edges of the petals with copper Stickles.

When dry, I sewed them together and scrunched till I liked the way they looked- added a honey colored crystal bead to the center, sewed them on to ear wires, added star dust Stickles to the edges and mounted them on a card.

I hope you like them!

Comments and questions always welcomed.
