Sugar Bowl Challenge #82

Good morning sugar fans....and I know what you're thinking but yes it's my first Christmas card of the year...I am normally rushing around late in the year getting those made but I am going to be totally prepared this year!!

Today's challenge over at The Sugar Bowl is the fabby sketch below..

...and as always the optional theme of "scrolls and swirls".

Once again one lucky winner picked at random will win 4 Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits...

...and as normal if there is more than 100 entries, the prize goes up to 6 Sugar Nellie get those entries submitted...

For my card I have used Knitted with Love from Sugar Nellie, which you can buy here from Funky Kits and I coloured with copics, papers from Fancy Pants - Hot Chocolate, the snowflakes have been punched from a Martha Stewart punches, the swirl is from MFT, I added some gems to finish.
