Typography art panel

Hello all!
So, I've had the Silhouette Cameo for a year now and I have to admit, I haven't really used it to it's full potential.  I've also been hoarding saving some hot pink glossy vinyl for several months so decided to make something special with that.  A friend back in the UK has recently had a little girl and I wanted to make a gift for her and as I love all the subway word art that's still very popular at the minute, I knew exactly what to do!
          I started off by painting an art wood panel with white acrylic paint and as that was drying, I typed out the words and birthdate, using the Silhouette programme.  I apologise for not being able to tell you what the fonts are but I never take notes on what I'm doing!  The Cameo cut the words for me and I transferred it to the dry wood panel using contact paper.


     Very cute :)   I'm wondering why I don't use my Cameo more as this was such a quick project to do!


            I would like to enter this into the challenges at Sparkle & Sprinkle ,  Use it Tuesday , Shopping our stash and linking up at Elizabeth & Co.
         I can also make customised versions of these which are available through my etsy shop - LilyPinkScraps.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
