I thought I would enter the swirls and pearls challenge over at Simply Stampin' Challenge blog. Swirls just called for the season of joy stamp set, this is probably my favourite stamp set, it's so versatile and not just for Christmas. Saying that, here's a Christmas card, (I know it's only October!) I made using this set and some non-traditional colours, chocolate chip, very vanilla and calypso coral one of the new in colours and of course, some pearls.
The second card is not quite swirls and pearls as I thought gems went better, again non traditional colours, tempting turqouise and whisper white, I used white embossing powder and some punches to add a bit of dimension.
