I started this card this summer, but did not have a chance to finish it because college started up, and it's been a crazy last semester for me. I finished the card Saturday, and learned an important lesson when using these tiny little beads: design the entire card first. Why? Because you cannot do any burnishing of the cardstock with the beads, they are too fragile.

But, perhaps a liquid glue might have helped?
