- has a red base
- included sewing
- used beads
- has a shape (circle, square, etc) in the main image
Luckily for me I just recently acquired the Round and Round anniversary stamp set! Circle... check! The sentiment is stamped from Through the Trees and heat embossed. Sewed the paper and the sentiment strip... check! Red base... check! OK, beads. I don't really "do" beads, but yet I had a big assortment set of little micro-beads in my stash. One of those things I "acquired" a loooong time ago figuring I'd try them out and I don't think I had ever used them. So I pulled out the red ones, and painstakingly hand-sewed them on as the little "berries" on the branches in the stamped image.
It's always good to get outside of your comfort zone now and then, creatively speaking. Sometimes you might even find something new that you like. This time, I did NOT!
Thanks for the great challenge, Ted!
