Beaded Birthday Card

Charlee 2
This was a nightmare card to photograph! I made it all in ivory linen card to start with but as I began to prepare this post it just looked sooooooo wrong!
All the pictures I took were pants, it didn’t matter how I framed a photo, the card looked awful, although in “real life” it was quite pretty.
I used an assortment of seed beads, pearls and stars to embellish the lettering, which I cut on my Sihouette.Charlee 4

Sometimes it is hard to know when to stop fiddling – but in the end I had to just fiddle some more, and think, it’s much better in black!
