A Mini Masterpiece

Yesterday I had planned an evening of craft, ready for me to share several cards using this gorgeous New Digi,
My computer mouse had other plans though,
 the battery went flat so it was late before I was able to get printing out my images,
leaving me only enough time to make the one card.
This tiny 3"x3" card in fact looks better in real life, it doesn't show up here but the fancy xcut frame is raised on foam pads and frames the tiny coloured image perfectly. A touch of glossy accents, some stickles and some nailheads.
Now, I've recently been accused of living in a cave, I hadn't seen nailheads and assumed they'd be, well, that they'd resemble nailheads and be dull and boring.
How wrong was I! They are gorgeous, and if you happen to call by LCI, Kerry is stocking them along with all the other scrummie embellishments.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
DOC36, Anything goes,
JDE27, Use 2 dies,
CBLA, Anything goes,
MIM111, Anything goes,
2 Sisters 113, Anything goes,
AGOAC57, Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,

Julie...I guess we've been in the same cave because this is the first I've heard of nailheads myself! LOL! I love the look though completes the card I think and the red brings out the tiny ladybugs! This is a beautiful example of CAS. Thanks for joining us this week at Jackson's Digital Images!

Lovely card and I like the die you used. Isn't it wonderful how nailheads can change a card completely. Thanks for playing with us at Jackson's Digital Expressions.
