Simply Less is More # 112

Good afternoon all. I hope, where ever you are, that you are managing to stay warm. We had snow and high winds yesterday but nowhere near as bad as other parts of the country. It was flipping freezing though, believe me.

The challenge for this week at Simply Less is More is to use Beads on our cards.
By heck, Chrissie and Jen do know how to challenge us. I do have beads. Not many, but some. I don`t know why I have beads `cos I never use them but it`s a good job I have some or I would have been stumped.
Mind you, knowing what to do with said beads is stumping, apart from stringing them and putting them round my neck. After much thought and a little frustration, I came up with this.

I stamped my Stampman Lace in clear embossing ink and embossed it in white EP then inked it up with Versacolor Mint green.
I cut it to size and using some very thin white ribbon I threaded the beads and attached it to the panel.
The beads are an odd shape, I don`t know how to describe them but they have a slight Mother of Pearl effect and are quite pretty.
Sentiment is by Flourishes.

I was chuffed to bits to be Showcased again last week. Thank you once again Chrissie and Jen.
