Bah Humbug - Challenge 29 Beads

His weeks challenge from Humbug Towers is beads.  I've gone really small for this with a 4" square card with decorated edge from Craftwork Cards.  It's covered with backing paper from my stash and the main image is stamped and embossed onto white pearl card.  This is from the Stampin Up Contempo Christmas stamp set.  It's been matted onto some co-ordinating card.  I've then raised it up with foam pads after putting a piece of organza ribbon across.  The beading on this card has been made from various beads on craft wire and I've used a Coiling Gizmo which is a really fun piece of equipment for making all kinds of wire jewellery etc.

Thanks for stopping by.
