Madame Payraud Butterfly Card and Gemstone Bracelet

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with some of my recent projects for you to look at. I'm starting with a Butterfly card I made using Serif software for my image and sentiment, Madame Payraud papers and embellishments, Papermania paper from my stash which matched this and dark brown cardstock. I used the image of the butterfly on the Madame Payraud paper as an embellishment then added my sentiment and 3D butterfly either side of this.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Secondly is a bracelet I have made myself using gemstones. For this bracelet I used Honey Quartz, Citrine, Tigers Eye and Sunstone. I only have little wrists so making my own jewellery means I can get things to really fit me and not slide up and down my wrist! :-)
Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one!

I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
