Colorful Circuitry

I am soooo excited that I have found circuit boards in colors other than just green. I've been adding them slowly to my shop. The red one already sold!

I would love to find purple or violet colored circuit boards. If anyone has any I'll trade for a pendant made from them (or something else)!

The blanket hems are double stitched and have reinforced mitered corners. The fabrics are really cute! Her earrings have pretty glass beads in a variety of shades. Be sure to stop on by!
