This card is for the WT challenge, to use beads. Here the beads sort of look like little bees, a fact that went unnoticed until the DH mentioned it.
The stems and some leaves of the flowers are embroidered, while the flowers and some leaves are done with ribbon that has been knotted (it wasn't easy). I added more knots to the pattern as it didn't look full enough to me.
The ribbon border comes that way and the Hugs is from a Cheery Lynn die.
