Bah Humbug - challenge 37

How quickly the weeks seem to be flying by now but at least I have a lovely pile of Christmas cards already thanks to the Bah Humbug
This weeks challenge is called 'Flourishes/Swirls'.  My image is a stamp by Magenta..coloured with copics and I've sponged the background, 3D the flower and using glossy accents in the centre added some gold 'Accent beads'.  The 'swirls' on the background are from one if the Cuttlebug embossing folders.  Sentiment if from S.U.  The photograph isn't good as theres is rather a lot of gold on the card and as you know it always reflects....

Thanks for looking

Anne

This is a lovely card with swirls and that stamp is great - sorry I scuppered your plans to use the large swirly stamp although I'm sure you would have come up with something quite different.
