Beads for Shaker Cards

Hello!  I wanted to make a "Shaker" card and wanted to get some "micro" beads to use.  I found this place, Penny Wise Arts, where they have gazillion kinds of beads!  It's really a neat place and they are oh SO helpful.  They made a small error on my order but corrected it quickly and they sent me some additional stuff to try out!  Alot of neat stuff to try out.  Wow! You don't find that a whole lot any more, right?  Anyhow, Suzanne is the one who took care of me.  She sent me this sample to help me with the use of her free templates that she has on her website (sorry about the picture not being so clear):

 Here's my first try...not too bad but I lost my beads cuz I didn't tape them in that well! hehe! 

Here's one I did with regular seed beads I had at home:

This one we did at one of my stamp/scrap classes....goodness, aren't we getting confident now with the beads? hehe.
On this one I really like the beads...these are some of the beads that were sent to me...they're iridescent...they look like little globes of color...I like em!  I'm gonna have to order more of these beads:
Well, as you can see I enjoyed making shaker cards and want to use more of the templates available at Suzanne's place.  Hope you enjoyed this... just wanted to share with you about Suzanne and her FUN website, Penny Wise Arts!  Go over and check it out....you'll definitely enjoy it. . . .please tell her I said hello!

Have a glorious day!
