Flowers & Beads

Hi, here's a card I made, inspired by this week's Muse challenge. I stamped the image in the corner of the cardstock, and coloured with inks. I accentuated the black dots on the image with Nuvo Drops. I added the green card diagonally over the image, and cut the card down to the original square. I added a strip of mirror board, and threaded some beads to add over the top. I stamped the sentiment onto another piece of green card, and cut it down to a strip, to add below the strip of beads.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Color Throwdown:
Less Is More: 'Use a Real Object' - beads
Come And Get It: 'Two or More Different Embellishments' - beads and Nuvo Drops

Concord & 9th 'Hello Lovely' stamp set
'Birthday Wishes' sentiment from Woodware 'Daisy Panel'
Artistry Ink pads: Amazon Trail, Pampas
Adirondack Ink: Cranberry, Butterscotch
Nuvo Crystal Drops: Ebony Black
Assorted beads

This is a lovely design, and the beads make for a wonderful textural element to your card. Thanks so much for playing at muse. (your cat family members are all adorable.)

I love how you've done this - especially how you've done the sentiment on the separate piece of card. It creates another element without overpowering it. Gorgeous colouring too!

A really fabulous design and the flowers peeking out of the corner look superb. That wonderful string of tiny beads adds texture as well as interest to your card. Super colouring and colours used. Thanks so much for popping this in at Less is More xx

Gorgeous colouring and I love this layout particularly the shape of the sentiment strip. And lovely to see some coloured 'white' space too.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
