DYB rr block for Lyn

This 6", 15 cm. block is for Lyn in the CQI group. Lyn had pieced the block and I did the embellishments. Lyn asked for Romantic/Victorian.
I have beaded a cameo brooch which were very common in the Victorian era.
Made a felt heart with an organza rose. The roses on the right are spiderweb roses.
Among the buttons are two from my grandmothers ( 1900)button-box: the bronze with the black spot in the middle and the mother of pearl one with the triangle.
