I am definitely in a learning process with the illuminated letters. I wanted to do one for my son and daughter-in-law for their anniversary. She loves purple and asked me to do a piece in purple. I found that gold killed the purple and I decided to use silver and used clear sparkle to make the purples pop back out. And, as my friend says, my signature ribbon! I used a celtic highlight on the letter and bordered it with a celtic border. I have delivered it and I can now post the picture.
