Less is More challenge.....beads

This week the challenge at Less is More is BEADS. I already had this card that I was working on, so I just added some Martha Steward tiny micro beads for the sand on the beach.

I have been seeing so many cards with flip flops and skies and beaches, I decided to try a few myself. This card is a combination of several different ideas floating around on Pinterest.

We still have alot of snow here, so it's been fun to think about summer while I was making this!

Card stock: SU bashful blue, white, sand, so saffron retired DP
Ink: SU black, bashful blue
Stamps: Hero Arts shoes and phrases
Other: Memory Box puffy clouds die, SU circle punch, MS micro beads, pearls


  1. Great minds think alike, lol! This is gorgeous! A bit of sunshine would be so welcome with all this snow around!

  2. What a great idea & fab card too

  3. I think we're all determined to think of summer sunshine Laurie! Love your beautiful sandy scene and the beads look wonderful.

  4. How ridiculously cute is this, Laurie?! So awesome. I can't believe your micro beaded sand!!

  5. Oh how sunny and sweet. I like the hat over Mr Sun. The flip flops look so lovely. And those tiny bits of beads gently thrown around are perfect for the challenge.

  6. Super card. Can`t wait for flip flop weather.
