Let's Celebrate - Birthdays!

This week at The Sisterhood of Crafters the challenge is about Birthdays. It can be a birthday card or a gift you made for someone's birthday. Although my birthday card stash is running quite low my project is for a birthday gift. My neice's daughter turned 10 this month and I decorated the letters of her name to go up on her wall. This is more of a gift for the mom due to the fact that her daughter is blind and mentally challenged. Although Ariona may never see the decorated name I made for her I made sure it was tactile so she could feel it.

Here is a close up of the "N". Her mother's favorite saying is "Love is Blind", so I wanted to include that in there somewhere. But I also wrote that saying in Braille at the top of the "N". I used someothing similiar to Dew Drops to write it out. I also included some of these dots on the other letters just as decoration.
I really enjoyed making this for Ari. She's a sweetie and I have a soft spot for her since I also have a special needs daughter.
