Guest design slot for Fab 'n' Funky: use beads

This is my second week as a guest designer for Fab 'n' Funky (I'm their guest for the whole of the month of May - and, as there are five Wednesdays in May, that means five challenges).

I have to say that when I knew what today's challenge was I was a little bit worried because I don't often use beads on my cards. I went through a phase a few years ago when I did try to use them, but it didn't last for long - lol!

Fab 'n' Funky challenge 170: 'use beads' is being sponsored by Digi Darla who kindly supplied the image 'night out 2' that I printed out and coloured with copics. I stuck the image on to a piece of birthday sentiment card that was then matted on to some matt silver card.

The beads and hanging flowers are some that I've had for ages - I stapled the thread that was holding them on to the top layers and then used the Craftime flower to cover this up, sticking all the layers on to a white DL card blank.
