  1. What a lovely card! That is a pretty cool technique using the CM mixed with micro beads! I’ve got some colored micros that would be awesome to use paired with the Creative Medium! Thanks for the great idea!!

  2. The little bird card is cute. Thanks for sharing the cool way to use the micro beads! I bought them in several colors years ago and the’re just sitting in my cupboard! The board book page reminds me of those days of playing with paper dolls.
