La Fabuleux Tea Room Sign

I'm not really sure what La Fabuleux means in French (note to self: Google it!) but whatever it means, I used it on this wood sign for my tea room:
I had one sheet of graphite paper left and since it was raining on and off all day yesterday, I decided to use it for this little sign.
I bought this image off of Etsy a year or so ago and I simply love it.  After painting my wood plaque white, I used the graphite paper to trace the graphic onto it.  I had one little oopsie with the 'b' in Fabuleux but I can live with it.
Once I was finished tracing, I sanded it down to give it an aged look and did one coat of poly spray to seal it.  Then I added the fleur de lis wood pieces and two little pink rhinestones to give it a touch of color.  I don't know about you but now I'm in the mood for tarts, napoleons and cheesecake.  Too bad it's Sunday!
