All time favorite!

This is one of my all time favorite stamps, it is also one of the very first stamps that i purchased from an over seas supplier, "Reflective".  South Africans are very wary of doing business over seas, but the truth is that its when it gets here that we need to worry since most of our mail is pilfered by the post office.

Anywho, i colored this image with my copics and gave the pruple bits the glittah treatment with stickles, used one of my brand new MS punches that got delivered today, then i layered my flowers and they also got a good working over with the stickles, a tad over board with the blingy flourishes, but i just love to ver do things, he he.  The dp is from Sandy Lion, very old, but an old favorite.
Gonna enter this into sketch Saturday, since i used their fab sketch for this one and into CCT and they want a creation for someone special, i intend to send this off to my sister, whom i think is very special.
