A Spring Inspired Brooch

I made this little thing today to put on my bright pink sweater tomorrow at church {I have to give a talk in Sacrament Meeting and I thought it would be fun to wear}. 
I just cut out the fabrics that I wanted to use.  I also used 3 layers of Tulle, even though it is a hard to see it in the finished picture.
I did my hairspray treatment again to get the fabric to stiffen up and make it more durable.  {see previous post}
With the pink strip, I just hot glued it as I went around to give it a ruffle look.
At this point, I went around the bottom piece of fabric and trimmed it down a bit with pinking shears.
The back:
Enjoy your weekend!!
