Tuesday Throwdown # 221: Swirls And Pearls

Hello friends! Time for a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown. The theme this week is "Swirls and Pearls" and the good folks over at Sweet & Sassy have given the design team a few super-cute images to play with. Being a dog lover I couldn't resist this adorable little Christmas Puppy. You simply must check out more of Sweet & Sassy's sweet digis on their online store.

I had planned on making a shaker card, but then I forgot to put in the "shakes" before adhering the frame. But if asked I will say this card turned out exactly as planned ... that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
The front of the card is a piece of acetate. On the inside is the image of
the Christmas Puppy. I stamped the swirls in the bg with CBS and
VersaMagic Sea Breeze. Then I added a few pearls to the swirls.
For the snowy ground, I drew wavy lines with Baby Blue Liquid Pearls
and Stardust Stickles. 

Here's a close-up of the adorable Christmas Puppy I coloured him
with Graph'It markers. The greeting is from CBS Merry Little Christmas.
Sorry about the reflection - acetate is not easy to photograph.  

A couple of swirly accents on the inside and another greeting from
CBS Merry Little Christmas.
