J.Crew Inspired XL Flower Brooch Pin + Giveaway!

I love the J.Crew XL Flower Brooch Pin featured on J.Crew's June Issue.

Here is my version.

It is 6 inches across in diameter, it has blushing pink, and rich pink colors, and texturally feels like real flower petals.

Since I would like some followers/subscribers (what can I say, im, j/k;)) I've decided to give 2 away to 2 followers/subscribers.

If you are interested please subscribe and leave a comment saying "count me in" or something to that effect. I will do a drawing once I have 5 subscribers. :)

I included 2 pins on the back of my flower: a traditional bar pin back and a hair clip, so it can be worn as a brooch pin or in your hair.

I recommend the following in depth tutorial video by hairstylst Johnny Lavoy where he shows how to do a Katherine Heigel Inspired hairdo accented with a large flower.

For anyone interested in purchasing one of these pins, I will put them on etsy for $15 each. :)
