With the magenta stripes and the prickly look, this is one of the coolest additions to my crafts I have ever used. Can verify used as a focal point, but adds depth, scope, and a touch of whimsy to my projecs. My go-to place for dried media. Priced competitively, shipped in a timely, and the variety is overwhelming! Packed gently, nothing arrives crushed or destroyed. I love dealing with Curious Country Creations, and so will you!
