It's challenge #110 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week the theme is 'Bead It'. We want to see beads on your projects. Not sticky back pearls (well, you can use those too) but proper beads of some sort. Our sponsor this week is the lovely Judy at DIGI DOODLE SHOP with a $10 spend for our winner.

I used the image from Digi Doodle Shop 'Girl Sewing' as I thought it would be perfect and I wanted to keep the colours to a minimum. I hand stitched magatama beads onto my image along her cloth and one near her fingers, and then used seed beads and magatamas along the ribbon too. The borders are punched with a M.S. punch, the corner flourish is a Memory Box die (with a sticky pearl on), computer generated greeting and my papers are K & Co's 'Julianne'.

Entering into:
DIGI DOODLE SHOP #101 - Friendship.
DO YOU STACK UP #65 - Sew it.
CRAFTY PURPLE FROG #37 - Anything goes.
SIMON SAYS STAMP - Anything goes.
PARTY TIME TUESDAYS #61 - Anything goes.

CREATIVE MONDAYS #4 - Anything goes.
LOLLIPOP CRAFTS #73 - Anything goes.
MAKE IT MONDAY #82 - Anything goes.
