DCM challenge - beads

This week the challenge is set by Sue -
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.

For my card I had a go at making a butterfly with some craft wire and beads - not as easy as I thought it would be. The backing papers are by Brenda Pinnick.I've also used a Sue Dreamer sticker and some purple velvet rikrak ribbon.

The butterfly has turned out great..that must have taken ages! Seeing your Sue Dreamer sticker has reminded me I have some stamps designed by her..have to dig them out!
Great card design as always!

I've never made an attempt at anything like that but your little butterfly is really sweet. The papers are really petty (Lavender is my favorite colour) and the velvet ric-rak is so lush.

lovely card Jozza and your butterfly is soooo pretty - I've got the instructions somewhere for making one - it's different to yours though. I like the loops you've made on yours

Lovely card Jo and your butterfly looks great. I've never tried making anything with wire and beads - dread to think what mine would turn out like LOL
