DCM Beady eyed

My first card for the Daring Cardmakers challenges - this one is for this week's Beady eyed challenge. A shame this wasn't last week's challenge as I did a card with beads then but here's one I made today: For this I used my first piece of Bazzill Bling (no DCWV this time!) - the papers are a Rob and Bob (the blue) and a Dena's Closet retro Christmas (the green). The flower stamp was from the Cactus Pink Seeds set and stamped in pink Versamagic ink then Mill Hill seed beads (left over from my cross stitch days) sewn on. The greeting was stamped using a KI Memories blocks stamp and a Studio G one.

What a lovely card. I love the beaded flower - such a simple outline and it looks so effective filled with the beads. Look forward to seeing more from you! Angela
