Bits And Pieces.

Don't you find that as a crafter you collect bits and pieces of this and save off cuts and remnants of that! This card is made up using some of this in my quest to get organised. I even left a margin of white card base around the design so as not to cut into yet another piece of yellow card stock!Even my Sugar Nellie girl is one that I'd stamped a while ago having coloured only her skin and hair so I set about with the Copics to finish her off to match the Basic Grey June Bug remnants.


I made the flourishes by threading beads onto craft wire and placed my flower over the fixing spot. The beads are a casualty getting dressed in a hurry and catching a bracelet on a button lol! I have rather a big collection of these cheap buys from Primark,I can't resist them and have them in loads of colours,so after scrambling around the floor to collect what seems like hundreds of beads I put them in with my stash.I then added a line of Stickles around the edges just for some extra sparkle!

I'm going to use this card for the following challenges:-

Paper Sundaes 36,Fabulous fall,

Charisma Cardz Challenge 38,Anything goes,

The Corrosive Challenge 82,Clean up the dust,

Ai Factory Challenge 49,Anything goes,
Delightful Challenge,Make it sparkle,
Southern Girls challenge 2,Recycle Jewelery,
Bellichallenge 100,Embellishments beginning with B,(beads and button),
Sisterhood Of Crafters,Birthdays,
Thanks for stopping by,remember to check out this week's Over The Edge challenge at Scrapbook Sisters,
