A Card with Wire

Hello friends,
And now for something different...
Before I became completely hooked on papercraft I used to make jewellery so grabbing my 
pliers, Artistic Wire and beads was a bit like second nature to me when I designed this card.
I like the delicate greens of the paper and the dinky little aperture (created with Labels Eighteen).
The border strip is Banner Basics Two.
It is missing hearts and butterflies..I will see if I can remedy that tomorrow.
Hope you are all having an enjoyable weekend.
Bye for now.

Hi Christine,
You mention that your card is missing butterflies, well I think you were definitely thinking butterflies weren't you?! If you look closely at your ribbon and wire it sure looks like wings and antennae of a butterfly. Hmmm... you really do love them don't you!!
I really love this card, like you I am a beader and love working with beads to create many things: including cards, flower centers, jewellery and designer stick pins.
Thank you for reminding us to mix and match with our skills and our crafting stash to produce lots of texture and dimension.
All the best Linda x
