Brittany is my sisters middle child, she cheers for a middle school team in Ohio. Near you Valerie.
I stitched around the page with my sewing machine and then distressed the paper edges with my scissors. ( guess I need to invest in a Tim Holts distresser).
The flower is two pieces of paper torn is a (sort of) circle. One of the pieces of the paper is torn smaller than the other. I then wet the paper and scrunched them. I microwaved them to dry them quickly and then glued the smaller piece on top of the larger, then add the pearl.
The brown diamond paper is accordion folded and then glued on top the paper. I used two different pieces and attached them under the flower. TFL
