Sew Lovely Birthday Wishes

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a card I made using Papermania Sew lovely stash I got in a docrafts goody bag a few months ago. Its one of my favourite ranges because its so jolly and bright!
I started by cutting my flower focal point mat and then cutting a circle from inside this leaving a frame. I then folded my card so the front would interact with each other. I covered the card with Sew lovely papers and added the interlocking frame. Next I decorated the front of the card with a sew lovely pin wheel on top of the interlocking frame, and added sentiments from the die cut set, which I embellished by matting with coordinating colours of felt. I then added ribbon and a bow too.
Inside the card I decorated with papers and added a paper which suited being written on as the middle section.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you for visiting 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! 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…
