Live, Laugh, Love Wood Plaque redo

Remember I told you I went to a few garage sales last weekend?  Well, I got me some good stuff!  Here is the first of my projects from what I got:

I liked the wood and the structure of the sign.  I didn't like the corny words on it.  I knew I could make something cute from it.  

First, I took it outside and sprayed that baby with Rustoleum Apple Green.  I am lovin' this color!!
I gave it 2 coats to make sure it was covered well.  Can you tell I've used it a few times?

I love how well this spray paint covers.  You really only need 1 coat.  But in this case, I did 2.

I didn't take pictures of this, but I sanded the edges of the board.  Then I added a black polka dot bow, with two polka dot rosettes.  If you need a tutorial of how to do the rosettes, you can find one here.

I love how it turned out and now I just need to figure out where to put it.  

Do you think this would make a nice Wedding gift?  I am thinking about giving it to a couple who is getting married in a few weeks.
