I made this for the LSC152 challenge to use scraps and leftovers from other projects. I combined this challenge with a new challenge started by my friend Chrissy (Chrissyd723) on a new challenge blog found here: http://chrissydbelliitup.blogspot.com/
This is called "Belli It Up" and features embellishments. This challenge was to use microbeads which I used in the flower centers. I used crystal Effects as the glue. The image was stamped on vanilla shimmery cs with Adirondack Espresso ink and embossed with clear ep. It was then colored with Twinkling H2O's. The edges were distressed with Really Rust and Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink. The image was too big for the cs so I cut the top petals out and let them dangle over the top. All the card stock and ribbon were leftovers from other projects. TFL!!

Joan, how beautiful! The microbeads really stand out and make the floral scene so realistic! Of course, your coloring is faubulous too--I've been looking at those twinkling H2O's a lot--I should get some and see if I can achieve a look like yours--your work is gorgeous and I'll be checking out your friends' blog for more inspiration! ~hugs~
