Truly Scrumptious #12

Fab sketch this fortnight on the TS challenge blog - the extra spec was to use beads.

I used a great House Mouse image that was sent to me by a lovely crafty friend - thanks Linda :) The papers are some of the new shimmer card from DC and some great monocrome paper from The Papermill. Image was coloured with WC pencils - again!'ll never guess what I ordered, I didn't stretch to Copics - yet..........but I've ordered 10 ProMarkers from JSheen :) Can't wait for them to come!!!!!!!!!!

Back to the card!

The sentiment is Penny Black and was stamped in Versamark and chalked.

Fern around the flowers is from some of the fab bargains I pick up from The Range - I just hope people don't look in my trolley and think I have a house full of false flowers in ALL those colours!!!

Lastly the beads....I threaded them onto a pearl headed pin - not sure what look I was after!
