Beads???

Well yes, that is what is required at Less is More this week! So beads it is!!

 I had to take this one upside down :0) to show the clear embossed circles




Hi folks, lovely to see you! I hope you're lovely and warm, it's not very warm here and I've had the heating on all day :{ Perhaps I need to chop up some logs or get scrubbing to warm up, making cards isn't the most active of hobbies LOL
My card has an old bead bracelet on it, the elastic has gone and I doubt if I can be bothered to put new in! So I twisted it and adhered it to my card, it was a stinker to photograph, hope you like:D
I used;
Spellbinders NestabilitiesCircles large
Crafters workshop, Mini Capricious
Dreamweaver translucent paste
Perfect Pearls, Gold
Love sentiment from Printworks

A truly inspirational card Gay! Love the addition of your bracelet but the translucent paste (think I need some of that) through the mask is gorgeous on the black card.
