It's all about the bling (and beads!)

Yay! It's Friday which means it's time for a new Dare!

Lynda's fabulous Dare this week....'Bling and Beads. You can use micro beads or threading beads. Any sort of bling: glitter, sequins, crystals brads etc. Have fun!!'




I used... More Blush papers by Basic Grey. Faux hardware is a sizzix die and the heart is a sizzix sizzlit die, outlined with a selection of little beads, all glued with Glossy Accents, Lace is from Bath Market, Paper String from Ikea, Ribbon from Little Silver Hat, Flower, brads and eyelet from stash!

The buttons may looks very carefully sewn on but I cheated (slightly!) I threaded them all in one long length then glued them with more Glossy Accents! (they came from my wonderful find in a charity shop and are a lot more shiny IRL to add a bit of blinginess)

All the other gorgeous creations are here check out the other wonderful cards made by the design team and have a go yourself! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!

Beautiful, I love pinks with beiges and browns, I think it makes it less "soppy". Love the buttons and stitching, am becoming addicted to that myself!
