Penny Black Saturday #57!

Morning all! Sorry I've not been blog hopping this week, work is so busy all I want to do when I get home is flop out on the couch! Hopefully I'll get time this weekend. This weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge is Swirls. And the prize is this cute Penny Black Frolic stamp from Simply Create, it's so cute! The DT cards this week are beautiful, I love swirly bits on cards and theirs are fab!

Here's my card using some gorgeous pearlescent and foiled swirly paper with this pretty stamp. I've embossed the image with white sparkle powder then painted in the gaps with Twinkling H2O's. The fuzzy image is an attempt to show you how glittery it is, hmmm! Still struggling with my mojo, hence the simple layout - nothing too taxing! I've left off a sentiment until I know what it's for. Thanks for dropping by, I hope you like it!
