365 day 14: DIY

Today's challenge on 365 is DIY: make a flower embellishment out of paper.

I've seen hand torn flowers before, but never tried to make one, but took the plunge. I roughly tore 'circles' and randomly cut into them around the edges - you can see what I've done much better if you click on the picture. Considering it was a first attempt, I'm fairly pleased with the way my flower has turned out. I was going to cut flowers on the cricut, but I thought that was cheating.

The pink spotted paper is Anna Griffin and the dark paper is HOTP.
