A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 61 - Swirls

We have a nice easy challenge for you this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar which is to use swirls on your cards. These swirls could be swirly papers, swirl embossed paterns, swirl stamps of chipboard swirls.

I just adore this little mermaid from CC Designs. The papers are by doodlebug and the swirls were cut using a Quickutz die. I have embossed the paper just behind the mermaid with a cuttlebug swirls folder, but I do not think that the embossing is showing up very well in the photo. The little charm came from my friend Tracy - thanks Tracy.

I have used the same papers on the inside of the card and used another one of these cute mermaids.

Our sponsor this week is Tracy from Squiggle Stamps. Squiggle Stamps are a new stamp company - launched June 2009. Their premiere collection of general occasion images are available now with the arrival of the very cute Oscar & Daisy due very soon!
As well as the two cute Daisy stamps Tracy is very generously giving the lucky winner a selection of 6x6 MM Abby papers, pebble stickers, assorted ribbon, trimming, flowers & gems. Thank you Tracy for this awesome prize! - worth checking out here

Have a great week.
