Gray & Yellow Dandelion Mailbox

How cute is this?! I just love how the dandelions pop against the charcoal gray background. How does this translate to a mailbox? Well, it goes something like this:
I blurred my street name. I've got a little one to keep safe! 

I love it! I can't wait to try out more outdoor vinyl projects this Spring. Stay tuned!
