CFC29, LIM43 - Sizzix leaves

The boys and I braved the crowds shopping on Friday for a while and when I was in Joann's I picked up the Sizzix Branch and Leaves Sizzlits die that has been winking at me for a few months now.  When it was less than $5 it became too irresistible to pass up -
Two challenges inspired this card - the first is the sketch challenge from CAS-ual Fridays pictured above and the second is the Less is More - A Bit of Bling challenge.  My "white space" is really kraft space on this particular card.
I wish you could see how sparkly this card is in real life!!  The pretty green twinkle stickers, cardstock (Lichen, kraft) and sentiment (Friend to Friend) are from a muse|studio.  Baker's twine (Honeydew) is from The Twinery.
