Have you got beady eyes?

Just a quick one as I am way behind today!
Daring Cardmakers challenge this week was set by my lovely friend Sue H.

We have our 'Beady' eyes on you!

For my dare this week I would like you to make a card that incorporates beads somewhere in the design…..it’s as easy as that!
It can be one bead, lots of beads, big beads, and small beads, whatever you like as long as there’s at least one on your card somewhere.

If you are beady eyed you will note lots of similarities between this card and yesterdays layout!
Why not have more of a good thing?! The Frances Meyer cardstock is of such a heavy nature that it makes for a fab card. Even with the weight of the chipboard and beads it is not buckling. The bead flower centre is made by smooshing lots of glossy accents on, adding beads and then covering it with micro beads. The beads got somwhat submerged so I added a few more beads on the top! I really love these colours together - I think they look really fresh.

Must go and do some work so have a lovely weekend and do see if you can make a card with beads on and link to DCM

The combination of papers you have used is beautiful ..I notice they even extend to the inside!! The flower is very pretty with all it's beady bits.
