LOC Another One Bites the Dust....

Yes!!!!!  My pile of UFOs (unfinished objects) is getting smaller by the day - here is one that was so quick to create.

I used a negative from a Stampin Up DieCut - I raided this from my friend Ann's Scrap Bin - it is one of my best resources and goes to show that 'one man's junk is another mans treasure!'

I added a tag using Layers of Color Sent With Love and Merci Bouquet art stamp sets.  Crinkled Seam Binding has been added and a flower from the Flowering Gems art stamp set.

Some left overs have been embossed and added inside of the DieCut of the bird,  followed by crocheted lace trim with pearls added to the lower edge of the card and finished off with a flower from the Layers of Color Flowering Gems art stamp set.

It all comes together quickly and makes a pretty card - leaving the UFO pile just that much smaller - that has to be a good thing - right!?!  LOL!
