Altered Letter "S" for a friend

Hey Y'all!!  So...looking like I am gonna average about one blog post a month!  That is just sad, but anyway...

Here's my latest project.  It's an altered "S" that I made for a friend.  I haven't mailed this to her yet, so if she sees it I guess the surprise is ruined.  HAHA!!

I got the S from the Dollar Spot at Micheals.  I'm not sure if it was more than $1.  It's been so long ago that I bought it.

The letter was silver and I painted it purple.

I then added some purple paper over the top of the S to add some texture.  The purples were a little different in shade, so I painted over the paper as well.
After letting it dry I added my embellishments
I used Zva Creative pearl flourishes, a white I Am Roses flower, 3 green recollections roses, 2 Metal corners by Wild Orchid Crafts, Misc beads from my stash, an acrylic butterfly from the Micheals $1 spot and 2 Wild Orchid Crafts rosebuds. 
Here's a few close ups

Simple and quick project that took me about 2 weeks to complete!  HAHA!  I am sure you could do it much faster.  :) 
Thank you for taking a look and any comments are appreciated.
