Beading on stencil

Hey everybody, my second post of the day, I just finished making this card, so thought of sharing it. I would be busy next few days, so don't want to wait till then ;)

If you are a regular here, you would already know that, off lately, I am working with stencils a lot. Today, I decided to take it to another level by adding stitches to the stencil. It was in my mind for sometime, so today sat down to execute it.

I started with a white front, I sponged it in green pigment ink, and then I stenciled a flower in red and leaves in a darker green using the ARTploration stencil - bold blooms. Then I stamped a flower from Mama Elephant - water bloom, and a butterfly from STAMPlorations - trendy butterflies. I added the sentiment from STAMPlorations - trendy feathers. After that, I used the small french knot flowers and twines from WPlus Designs - embroidered bouquet, and stamped to create a background.
Finally, I pierced holes, and added the red beads with a black twine, this took me forever to do. I usually sit down to craft in the morning, and finish it and sometimes I post it right away, and all this is done before 11am, but today it was pretty late, after finishing the front, went in the kitchen to put some rice in the rice cooker, hubby dear comes home for lunch everyday, so have few minutes in hand to make lunch.

I came back to finish the card, I used a textured red base , added the front, and done.
I love the beaded stenciled flower, and I really hope you all like it too. here i it is, and I am off to finish my cooking ;)
