Daring Cardmakers - Beady Eyed


This week's dare at Daring Cardmakers is to make a card on which we have used beads. I love beads, and have quite a little collection, but I am too impatient to sew them on or to string them -- maybe that's why I still have so many! So for this challenge I went with a shaker card full of bugle beads and some micro beads that are so tiny, you can barely see them in this photo.

Well done Cheryl - anyone who can make a shaker card has my immediate respect - you should see the mess I've got into trying to make the darned things - actually, no, you shouldn't see them - I'd be way to embarrassed!

This one looks great, and the beads look fab in there
