Another Welcome Door Sign

I made 2 welcome door signs as gifts this Xmas (the first one is here).
I used hard board (?) for the background and some of the flower decorations, painted it all, varnished them with spray paint and glued everything on.  Here's how it turned out:
I also glued on some fabric flowers and used blings for their centres and a glass pebble for the centre of the larger flower:
Some of the wood cut out flowers I didn't paint, because I thought they looked pretty as is, so I just glued them on as they were.
I rounded off the background with some gold paint that I just brushed all around the edges.
I glued on cute little plant pot goodies and filled them with paper roses.

After spraying on the first coat of varnish, and while it was still wet, I sprinkled some glitter onto the letters.  When it was dry, I varnished it again another 2 times to seal the glitter on properly.
Some of the wood cut out flowers I painted - I bought different sizes of the same flowers and glued them ontop of each other to layer them:
These welcome signs are so much fun to make. :D  Hmmmmm......who else can I gift one to.....
