DCM Remember beads?

Something I really rarely ever use, so I thank you Daring Cardmakers for sending me into the back of beyond into the depths of my craft space, where no crafter has been for years lol

Crafters log...stardate Monday...sometime in July.

Found blue beads and a flower with a pink bead in the middle underneath all the old stuff... we have lift off!!

So I created this with a stamp by Postmodern Design, scrolls by GPP and a crackle stamp by errmmm...where's that stamp got to ?? lol.

Please click on the images to enlarge.
