Burst sign

It was an interesting request, a door sign for a popular flower shop called Burst. The co-owner Dale has been very complimentary of the Chapeau de Gateau line and hoped to add some of that look and commissioned ribbon sign. I think the result achieved the request for handmade and couture feel.

C'est Joli Wedding Brooch
