Sweet Sugar Nellie Postbox

Sweet Sugar Nellie Postbox is the lucky chosen stamp to get played with today. Entering in the Sugar Bowl Challenge ~~ sketch as follows and my favorite color. See if you can figure it out :-) Hee hee!!!
I rotated the sketch :)  The dp is DCWV and the matting is SU cardstock of various blue colors.  I had so much fun coloring this image~~loads of color and sparkle.  Used CB embossing folders on dp and on the one behind nellie~~ I darken raised areas by swiping with blue ink pad~~turned out very nice but hard to see~~check the edges.

Below are close ups of Sweet Nellie. If you look close you will see I added dimension to her letter and envelope.  Embellies include a little heart sticker on mailbox, rhinestone flowers on select flowers in flower garden and stardust stickles on bottom edge of her blouse and on baby butterflies :D
