I'm just finishing up a custom order for a letter "M". I was asked to use pale blue, gray and ivory for the colors, I purchased those colors in bazzill card stock and also a blue that was a smidge darker than the pale blue. Her walls are ivory so I chose the pale blue for the actual M shape and decided to accent it with the other colors. She wanted it to be 12" tall, on the computer I took the M she chose and did a loose sketch of what I thought it would look like. Once I had the right hand side completed (before glueing anything down), I sent her a photo to make sure I was going in the right direction. Once I received approval I continued to finish up the entire piece, going back and forth between the darker blue and the gray and ivory. I happened to have a pale blue sheer ribbon in the width that I wanted (1/2" ish) to hang it by; now all I have to do is create two tabs to go on the back from which the ribbon will attach. I can't wait to hear how she likes it.
