At SweetStamps blog today our theme is Microbeads.  Please join us for a chance to win $20.00 in FREE stamps by entering your Microbead creation in our challenge.  If you enter using a SweetStamps stamp you will be entered twice in the drawing.

For my card I started with the EF4017 Embossing Folder from Crafts-Too and embossed the front of the white A6 card making sure the embossing was indented not raised.  I colored in the indented areas using Distress Markers (Broken China, Vintage Photo, Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marigold and Black Soot).  I used a Quickie Glue Pen on the colored areas and applied Sugar Beads to the birds and Sugar Sand to the leaves.  The sentiment is 2 separate stamps 9083 To A Wonderful and 9090 Daughter both from SweetStamps.com.  I finished the card with some silver iridescent border and corner stickers.
