Altered Fleur de lis letter B

Happy Saturday!  Today I have for you a project I did last week for a partnered letter swap in one of my swap groups on FB.  I belong to several if you would like to join one or more please hit me up on my crafty FB page! So this letter was for my crafty friend Lyne!  She wanted me to use the B for her last name.  She also likes Paris and her craft room is black and white.  So this is what I came up with:

Close up of the letter with flowers and bling.  I assembled the flowers after spritzing them with Heidi Swapp Navy ink.  I used a variety of bling for the centers. The bling Fleur de lis is from The Paper Studio.

Really close up of the flower and this view gives you an idea of the subtle shimmer I added to the black fleur de lis background piece with Radiant Rain Ice spray.

I spritzed the Cricut cuts from French Manor with Tattered Angels Chalkboard spray in Mantis.

I took lots of pictures since I no longer have this item, it is already in Lyne's hands!
