LOSTie Spring Card Kit #5 - Laura

Today's card was made with Laura's kit. It took me a little while to pull this one together, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Laura had provided us with a few strips of cardstock stamped with different patterns - I used two (the Apricot Appeal and Perfect Plum strips) as is, and the third, the Blush Blossom strip, I decided to turn into a decorated egg shell. Laura sent more than one stamped image, so I cut the shell off of one of them, traced it onto the Blush Blossom strip, and cut it out and mounted it on the main image with foam dimensionals. The egg shell is finished off with a few adhesive pearls. The only other thing I wanted to mention was the white gel pen - I used that on the scallops, the flower centers on the Perfect Plum strip, and randomly on the background. I think those little touches add a lot and make the card pop a little more.
