Sweet Stamps-MicroBeads

 It's time for the Monthly Challenge at Sweet Stamps, and we are using Microbeads for this challenge.

 I had fun and made a card for my Aunt Patty. I do not get to see her too often, and I think she will appreciate some good wishes via Snail Mail!

I wanted to write out how I did the Paper Piecing for the vase:
Take the DP you want to use- and apply a section of Sticky Tape to it.
Stamp your image on the Sticky Tape
Next, cut out the portion of the image you want to paper piece.
Peel off the top white layer and you will have the DP cut out with sticky on the top.
Add the Microbeads and rub them in- I use a fingertip to burnish them to make sure they are well adhered.
Viola- you are done!

Here are the Sweet Stamps items I used to create the card:

 I hope you will join in the challenge! Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by so everyone has a chance to win!
