Tiny beads all over

So here it is again (the pic seemed to disappear, maybe Mr Blogger wanted it for himself or is just playing silly games, hope this one stays) my first card with a charm on it. The card was waiting for me when I got home after the craft fair yesterday and it just needed some finishing touches. Sometimes those last minute ideas ruin everything...but I was exhausted enough after the fair to not have any grander illusions, he he.

I used:
Magnolia stamps for image and tag, Penny Black snowflake stamp
Derwent watercolour pens for colouring, Sakura glaze and metallic pens
Distress Inks for stamping and distressing, Frosted Lace Stickles
Cuttlebug snowflake die
Maja Design papers
DMC thread, charm from Silverpärlan, tiny beads from Panduro

I'm entering:
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Relish to embellish
For Fun Challenges: Use metal
Just Magnolia: Anything goes and the optional beads
The ABC Challenge: G is for Glitter
Crafty Calendar Challenge: Winter Wonderland and optional snowflake
Critter Sketch Challenge: Christmas...Anything Christmas
Stamp and Create Challenge: Tis the Season

Hope you're enjoying the weekend, we have a wonderful sunshine and frost today, cold but oh so beautiful!



  1. Hi Maarit

    Your card is beautiful.

    Such gorgeous colours and you did really well to get all of those little beads to behave themselves!! LOL!!

    Your title made me smile because for some reason when I first read it I was expecting it to carry on to say "Tiny Beads All Over the Floor"!!!

    I have just seen your star stamp and the lovely card you created with it. Such a brilliant idea .. well done. It looks amazing.

    Hope you are having a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  2. Stunning work Marrit and well done on the patience it must have taken with the beads.

    A forsty morning here as well, it looks like winter has arrived.
