No Stamping Sketch for Simon

I'm down to the wire for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, but still wanted to share my card. Every now and then I try to create something without using any ink/stamps. I necessarily start with that in mind but am amazed when it falls into place. I'm not sure if I'm thrilled with this card, but it was fun to play with the mylar sheet and iron-on image. What do you think? (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Image Detail
JoAnn's had a huge stash of iron-on appliqu├ęs in the clearance bin. I have a difficult time passing by a good deal and thought I'd try to see if they could be used for cards. The bird was a bit tricky as some of the pieces were very thin (and broke off easily). I just glued the 'image' down but think it would also work to 'iron' it on the paper (on a low heat). I'll let you know how that turns out. I love this image because it's 'flocked' so there's added texture.
I used my 2 'scrap' pieces of the mylar and DP for the inside of the card. The white heart image is actually flocked on the paper which was cool. The shiny mylar transparency provides fun contrast.
