dcm challenge

it's time for another dcm challenge,this weeks challenge is................
Hi all, it’s Sue here and it’s my turn to set the dare for you this week I’m sure that most of us girlies had a bead box when we were little and if you were like me, would spend hours sorting and swapping them with friends. Come to think of it, things haven’t changed that much because I still have a box of beads and I’m hoping that you do too.

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.

this is what i've done............



i stamped using a magenta stamp and embossed it with gold powder,i painted it in with h20's and stitched black beads onto it.

i love beads just as much as kathy does and since she's showing her's off i thought i'd show mine off too !:)





photo 1 are my bits and pieces boxes!
photo's 2,3+4 are my 'nice' beads
photo 5 is my silver findings and charms
thanks for looking:)
