Micro Beads

Well everybody here is my take on the Borders Challenge:

I used white card stock as my main card and made a A6 card
I used a Spellbinder Grand Decorative Ovals
to cut my image out
I layered my Image onto lovely White Pearl Card
that I embossed with a French Dot Embossing Folder
I added RicRac to the center of the card before I layered my Image
Last but not least added 4 White Pearls to the 4 corners

This lovely stamp is from SweetStamps.com 
Christmas Rose Candle

The Promarkers I used:
Canary Yellow, Lipstick Red, Berry Red,
Leave Green, Forest Green

Distressed Inks I used:
Squeezed Lemonade 
Spiced Marmalade

I used a Gold Pen for the Candle Holder

added Red Beads to reflect the Berries
