Altered sign for my craft room

This is my complete project for the challenge on She's a Sassy Lady.  The challenge was to make a Home Decor item, weld on your Gypsy and use a flower.  I bought this sign for $1 at a thrift store.  I painted it and sprayed with Glimmer Mist to tint.  I then designed my project on my Gypsy.  My blog name is done with MS Elegant Cakes font which is welded together.  The flowers are the Scalloped flower from Mother's Day Bouquet.  They are cut at 2", 1 3/4", 1 1/2" and 1 ".  I wet each cut and crumple them up then smooth them out carefully to dry.  I put 6 to 7 layers together and punch a hole with my Crop a dile and then add a brad.  
I used Diamond Stickles on the flowers and title.  The circle image is from Cricut Everyday and I added gems to bling it out.  The leaves on the flowers and the butterfly are a MS punch.  I then added $1 Michaels ribbon around the edges.  Now I have  sign for my craft room.
