Falling for blue

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree
I think I am falling in love with making cards in blues! LOL
OH yes, second blue card in the same week!
When I saw this lovely inspiration photo -------> 
on Cath Edvalson's blog: Moxie Fab World ;
I know I want to make a card with my first (ever) Christmas stamp.  And if you like the inspiration photo too, you could check the details here.
My card.

I sprinkled Perfect Pearl powder over the image immediately after I stamped it, so it has a pretty, subtle shimmer, but my camera did not pick it up! :( 
Instead of gluing the beads, I strung them together with a silver elastic cord and secured it to the back of the panel.  To add a little more glittery goodness, I dotted Crystal Stickle at the edge of the larger blue panel.  The square card measures 5 x 5 inches.

Stamp: A Stamp in The Hand (Pear Tree with Bird)
Paper: Bazzill (blue card stock), white card base
Ink: Ranger Distress (Broken China)
Others: Crytal Stickles, Perfect Pearl powder, blue beads, silver elastic cord
Thanks for stopping by. 
Happy Friday!
