Today I decided to combine as many challenges as I could into one. I managed to get four out of the five that I like on Tuesdays!
Daring Dardmakers "For my dare this week I would like you to make a card that incorporates beads somewhere in the design…..it’s as easy as that!It can be one bead, lots of beads, big beads, and small beads, whatever you like as long as there’s at least one on your card somewhere."

and last but not least
Take Part Tuesday's challenge is "nests"
So I started with my base being a tag and I stamped Tim Holtz's tree with a soft sage ink and then over stamped the doodle bird from Alpha Stamps with brown ink. Next I spritz the entire tag with an iridescent gold shimmer. While that was drying I cut out an image from Paula's Kit club Bunny Love Kit, it is a scene of a bird being born I cut the inside of the image out and just used the frame, keeping the nest. Next I added the seed beads, they are sewn on using fishing wire. And as a finishing touch I glued down some Spanish moss to accent the nest a bit more and added diamond glaze to the birds. The ribbon finishes off the tag.
Hope you enjoy!
