Jen has another great Deconstructed Sketch Challenge posted today! I'm also playing along with the WT challenge to use beads. I love that this challenge "pushes" me to use some supplies that I've forgotten - in this case it's microbeads! I thought this sunflower - one of my fave images to color - would be perfect to add some brown beads to the center. I also added Glossy Accents to the little ladybug. The card base is a 5 1/2" textured pre-made card from a Recollections card and envelope set. I then cut the green panel in a 4 1/2" square and continued to layer and layer.
Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Sunflowers (Flourishes)
PAPER: Graphic 45 "French Country" 6x6 pad, X-Press It Blending Card (for image), White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Jute twine, PTI Tiny Tags die, Copics, Glossy Accents, Microbeads, Rick Rack Die-Namics by MFT, Flag die by Lil' Inker Designs, Corner chomper, Stitched Rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs.

Oh gosh, you make me wish I had brown beads! I was thinking of exactly this sort of use! I suppose I could colour some of my clear ones, LOL. This is simply gorgeous - and those papers are one of my current favourites too.
I always love sunflowers, and the little glossy ladybird is the sweetest addition to it.
