Week 112 Recipe - Use Beads

Our challenge last week was very popular with some fantastic cards and inventive use of frames emerging.  This week may be a little more challenging but we know you will come up with some fabulous ideas.  The recipe this week is...
We want to see beads somewhere dotted around on your creations this week ...  Don't forget to check out the challenge rules..


My first card uses DP from Stampin Up and Twine from the Ribbon Girl with beads wrapped around the card.  It's finished with a simple sentiment also from Stampin Up.

My second card is also Pool Party and I paper pierced the heart using a Stampin up template and then hand stitched it with clear seed beads.  The sentiment is also from Stampin Up. The back ground embossed.

This card has a simple flower, stamped on kraft card with Soft Suede ink and clear embossed, which was then bleached and a few beads added to the centre.
This is set in a frame and backed with some French Script from Hero Arts.
Here is a favourite layout, with a little butterfly from SU 's Papillion Pot Pourri set, with some antennae made from wire and embellished with a couple of red beads. The background is stamped with one of the SU Confetti set.
I have had a busy week, including visiting Mandi on the Isle of Wight . She sends her best wishes to you all, it was lovely to see her again! Her shop is looking amazing!
