To use micro beads, find any stamp image which allows for coloring. These parrot cards were made with the Sparkle N Sprinkle Stained Glass Parrot. It's on sale this month. The birthday sentiment is also from SNS. I cut it apart to accommodate Nesties Labels 10 on my Grand Calibur.
SNS Super Adhesive Sheet slightly larger than the image - about 1/4". Apply the SAS. Cut little slits in the excess SAS around the image of the image, then gently fold it over to cover the back of the parrot image. Place the image onto the layer for the card, pull off the protective sheet, and drizzle on the micro beads. The SAS is super adhesive. It holds the image to the under layer AND holds all those beads right through the US mail.

Embellish Magazine. At the last minute, I decided to play and came up with this combination of an Impression Obsession stamp and Sparkle N Sprinkle EPs and Glitters. Unfortunately, the true nature of Fantasy Gold glitter doesn't show up in my photo, but maybe you can get an idea?
The base shape of the card was created using the largest of Spellbinders Mega Nestabilities "Curved Rectangles" S5 006 and my Grand Calibur die cut machine. A green colored pencil outlines part of the flower.
Since this is my first Color Combo Swap, I tried sticking with the suggested colors, but it really needs a splash of something light in it! So my question is, when doing color combo challenges, are we allowed to use white (especially for images) or are cardmakers supposed to use only the suggested colors?
