Had yet another go at that beaded card and this one is more like what I had in my mind originally. Can't wait to try it out on Basic Gray.
This time I used Basic Black cardstock. Punched my circle again with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch. Embossed the Baroque Motifs swirl and 'cherish' using silver embossing powder. Glued on my favourite beads from my collection - they are a lovely smoky dark grey/black colour, and threaded some more for the length taped behind the circle opening.
