MC Apr 14/12 - Quill Beads - Happy Birthday

I picked up a mini mold 3D shaping tool to make cones for the centers of flowers etc... I was looking at mine,and decided to stick them together to make the beads - BIG GRIN. Added Stickles as a decorative element and strung it like a necklace.

Anyway to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy.

I'm using a Flourish stamp from Quietfire Design.
