Last Challenge of the Year

Can you believe 2011 is about to come to a close??? Does anyone else think we skipped a few months this year?  Like June - where did that go?  In any event, it's Thursday, so that means a NEW Ways to Use It Challenge.  To close out the year and take us into the next, Toni has challenged us to Bead It! Use those beads... I'm woman enough to admit that I completely FORGOT I had these beads until Toni posted the challenge.  I'm liking these...
I cut the card and heart frame with my FABULOUS Silhouette, of course!  I took packing tape and lined the heart cut-outs, then dunked it in micro beads.  I poured Crystal Effects over the top to keep them in place.  The card is cut from The Paper Studio Everyday Kraft collection.  Of COURSE I had to have that!  I chalked the edges with VersaMagic ink, and added that yummy giant black crystal swirl.  The Crystal Effects takes a minute to dry, but the rest of the card was a snap!  The card measures 4" x 5.75"... something a little different.
Not sure exactly that I'm doing with this card just yet, perhaps a Valentine?  That seems to obvious... hmmm... In any event, I hope you'll play along this week!
Don't forget - I'm hiring!  Check out the Design Team call HERE on SCS for my new store.
