Bling, Beads and Butterflies

It seems ages since I did any beading or jewellery making so when I saw this challenge it got me going.  It would have been easy to make a flower or use one of my Snippets but why take the easy way out when you can torment yourself with tiny beads?  So I made some butterflies using mainly size 11 beads and added them to this card:

 The stamp is from Hero Arts; the DP is Butterfly Garden from Wild Rose Studios and although the colours, yellow and purple, arent ones I'd normally use together, I think they are ok here.
This card fits the following challenges:
Ladybug Crafts Ink  "Make your own Embellishments"

Now for the Bling!  A friend is going to a wedding  on Friday and she asked me to make a necklace to match her dress which is mainly green with white and black.  So this is what I turned out plus a pair of matching earrings.  I'm still working on her card for the bride and groom.....will post it later on in the week if I remember to take a photo.

Thanks for looking.
