Getting the mail

I sort of cringed a bit when I looked at the small detailing of the flowers on this Elisabeth Bell stamp, but I think it turned out well, after all.  I just decided to use my sharply pointed pencil colors to get the tiniest areas, and prismas for the remainder.   Other than lace (unless you want to count the doily), I've used just about all other embellishments -- ribbon, diecuts, flowers, brads, pearls, gems, butterflies!
