Wall Letter - J for Julia

OK, so here is another one.  My friends are keeping me busy.  That's ok, because I love making these.  One of my very good friends wanted this one for her niece.  She liked the last "A" (Alyssa) that I made & Julia's room is dark pink.  Julia also takes Taekwondo.  So here is her letter; pink, butterfly, flower, glitter, & Taekwondo.  I like the style of each letter to represent the person it is for in some way, so that they know it was made just for them.  I also (even for the very young children) don't want them to outgrow the style of the design.  So that if I make a letter for a young child, I would like to think that they would still want to hang it when they are teenagers.
I used my Gypsy and Cricut to design & create this letter.
Cartridges used:  Sports Mania (Martial Arts Figure), Storybook (Name), Everyday Paper Dolls (Butterfly), Walk In My Garden (Scrunch Flower & Leaves), Accent Essentials and George & Basic Shapes (Mini Roses)
I used large bubble bubble wrap to make the background on the letter.  I then made some glitter glue (MS glitter & glossy Mod Podge) and painted some accents in the spots.  I coated the butterfly with Triple Thick & added Diamond Dust the the body of the butterfly.  I made the scrunch flower & painted each layer with home made glimmer mist before assembling and added a rhinestone to the center.  I made the Faux Mini Prima Roses, added a glass pearl to the centered, & clustered them at the bottom of the letter.  The name didn't show well so I made a background for it with some wavy decorative scissors & inked the edges.  I wanted the Martial Arts Figure to stand out, so I placed it prominently at the top of the "J" hook.
Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed. Lori
