My First Card as an "I Brake For Stamps" Full Time DT Member

Hello All!
A while back, I guest DT'ed for I Brake For Stamps and loved their images! Della asked then if I would like to be a full time DT but with my full time job and other design team responsibilities, there was just not enough time. Yet another silver lining to getting laid off is...now I have time!
This is my first official post as a "real" I Brake For Stamps designer!
I got to go shopping for rubber and picked so many awesome stamps that it was hard to decide which to do first. I also just received my latest Really Reasonable Ribbon DT package and in it were these amazing Purple and Green Glitz Ribbons that I just couldn't wait to play with, so I picked the "Lovely Fairy" image to match the ribbons. I love killing two birds with one stone! Don't you? ;)  Tehehehe!
Here is the result....

Remember, you can click on any picture to enlarge!
Here is a close up of that beautiful Green Glitz ribbon that I adorned with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I bought the glittery papers at Hobby Lobby and they are made by The Paper Studio.
