Swirly Snowy

It's another Christmas card...that's three in a row this week...I don't know what's wrong with me?! This one combines the fab sketch from the Secret Crafter Challenge by my buddy Jane, and the 'Swirls' theme of this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
After a hunt through my stash for some swirly paper, I remembered this pattern from the 'Classic Black Christmas' pad by Anita's. I also used my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder, on some silver card, and coloured 'Snowy' in black and silver to match...although I had to give him a bright red nose! I finished it off with a piece of silver organza ribbon, and a few adhesive gems...but I'm afraid I didn't add a sentiment...as there just wasn't enough room.

I'm looking forward to a day of crafting today...so hopefully I'll have something non-Christmassy to upload later!
