Truly Scrumptious Challenge #12

Hello! I trust everyone is enjoying the summer...the summer really should be at least three months. :o)
I was away last week and so I missed The Truly Scrumptious Challenge #11 but I am back this week for challenge #12.
The very talented Heather provided us with a sketch this week. Here it is:
In addition Heather wants us to use beads on our card somewhere....wow did I have to dig around for some beads. But I kinda missed these old beads and was glad to be able to use them again and I think they added even more to my crazy, bright card!


Okay and here is my card.


The paper I used was from the 75%off section of my LSS. It's K&Company-Citronella Collection. I also used some CTMH-Tulip & Sunflower cardstock.
The beads are retired CTMH
The flowers are retired Making Memories-some are plastic and some are paper
The chipboard flower and frame are CTMH
I covered the chipboard flower with cardstock and then random stamped it
I used my brand new Martha Stewart border punch
My magnolia stamp-Tilda is from the brand new summer kit and I colored her in with my copics.....did I tell you I am going for my copic certification this August??/I'm so excited!

I think that's it.
Thanks for looking and make sure you head over to the Truly Scrumptious blog to check out all the other designer's cards!
