LOSTie Spring Card Kit #12 - Barb

Today's card was made with Barb's kit. You'd never guess based on its simplicity, but this card took me quite a while to finish. Once it was done though, I was pleased with how it turned out. I was also happy that I thought to use my much-neglected Nestabilities to cut and emboss the main image panels. Everything else is pretty straightforward, though I just wanted to mention the Sizzix swirl, which I coated with Stardust Stickles. That is such a great and easy way to add lots of sparkle to the card without the mess of loose glitter! Also, the bird and leaves are all traced with a clear spica glitter pen, which wasn't picked up by the camera.
