Swirls and Pearls with the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

with the challenge this week hosted by the amazing Miria, the theme this week is

Swirls and Pearls

We are sponsored by


who are very generously giving the winner a $15 Gift Certificate

Here is my design team inspirational piece, however don't forget to hop on over and see what the rest of the amazing team have created to inspire you.
The base colour and contrast on this card is a yellow paper with those gorgeous Papermania Capsule Collection Liquorice Mono papers.  I have used an MS POTP to create an extra delicate layer and used lots of swirls and pearls, along with two little bows from the Papermania collection.  Not too many flowers sorry on this one, but there are so many of them on the papers and the image.

Here is a close up of the image
This is one of my new Penny Black images, coloured in copics, the sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.  The ladybird has been coated in glossy accents to make him stand out and shine, not sure you can see this in the photo though.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

Don't forget my candy which has a couple of more days to run and can be entered here

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
