Inspired! canvas art

I was not only inspired by the challenge of the week, but a video I had seen on Donna Downey's blog. I made this canvas piece for my sister's birthday (next week) using her favorite quote and both metallic and basic acrylic paint. The letters are Doodlebug stickers from one of the stores and the flourish is a template, yes, also from Paper Pals. The photo doesn't show it, but there is bling on this too...

I know my sister will love it!
