Colors of Summer2 Tattered flower pin

I use these colors all the time - I love big colorful pins - so I die cut 2 pieces of old atlas map and a piece of Grunge paper and made a sandwich.  Used paints and inks on the flower and sealed with glossy laquer.  Added buttons, flat backed pearls and Swarkovski crystals.  Voila - light as a feather ice cream color pin!  The map paper details are subtle but can be seen more clearly IRL!  Thanks for stopping by and if you want to be part of this fun summertime challenge - just click here:
