Winter wonderland challenge–DT card

Good morning dear friends, another week has flown by, but thank goodness it’s Friday!!  I hope you’ve had a good week so far.  Before I waffle on any further I would like to take the opportunity to wish my dad a very happy birthday – he’s 76 today.  Happy Birthday Dad, hope you have a wonderful day!

Onto my card – we have a new challenge over at winter wonderland challenge and the lovely Lynsey has set the theme of “swirls and pearls”.  A nice easy theme for you this week so we want to see lots of gorgeous entries.  Here is my card:

WW #10- swirls & pearls

WW #10 - swirls & pearls (close up)

I have used a brand new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘cosy Polly’ from the ‘Polly penguin’ collection.  There are 3 new offers of the month for June and this cute penguin collection is one of the three.  Pop over to the shop and check them out, you won’t be disappointed.  I have used a scrap of paper that I’ve had in my stash for years and the layout is really simple.  Obviously I have included the obligatory swirls and pearls!

We are sponsored this week by Delicious Doodles and the lucky winner will receive 3 digis of their choice.
