Bedazzled

That's what I ve been with this fantabulos class by Nat over on UKS, you can find the class here and it involved sewing beads. I ve recently managed to bag myself the beautiful beautiful SU Garden Shillouette set from the level 2 hostess. I wanted this for so long and now is finally mine. It was only fair I ve showed it some action and I was delighted when I ve seen Nat s idea, she used a very similar set from PTI. Anyway this is what I came up with and I love it!!!

I ve used Pumpkin Pie Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue as my colour scheme, I ve used my SU markers to ink the stamp ( Choc Chip for the branch, Cert Cel. and Old Olive for leaves, and Pumpkin Pie for the blooms) found some orange seed beads in my stash and those were the only size suitable so had to work around the orange but I m so pleased of how it turned out. Used the border punch again and found some really punchy orange wide satin ribbon and looped this around a coil shape from the Hodpodge Hardware, here s a more angled shotRight off to bake and make some cakes I desperately need to have finished by Friday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend M xx
