Thank you SEW much card and Butterfly semi precious chip bracelet

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a special card for a friend and some jewellery I have made too :-) 
I will start with my card-I used Papermania Sew Lovely collection from a docrafts goody bag, printable canvas and buttons.
I started by printing a photo of a tropical butterfly that I took last year onto canvas-to bring texture to the sewing themed card. I created a sketch to show off my favourite papers from the set, then I drew stitches onto the papers and the canvas image. I added a sentiment at the top corner, then added buttons and a pleated wheel embellishment in the opposite corner to the sentiment.
Next I decorated the inside of my card with matching papers, and placed a die cut circle of white cardstock inside for me to write my message.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Next is this butterfly semi precious memory wire chip bracelet. I used memory wire, semi precious chips of Quartz, Adventurine, Tigers Eye, Sodalite, Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Carnelian. Between each length of coloured chips I placed a silver bead. At the end of my bracelet I finished it with a loop and added a butterfly charm.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

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! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. 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…
