Pink, pearly and swirly

The new challenge at Penny Black and More for the month of February is "Pink, pearly and swirly". As usual  there are some fabulous craft goodies up for grabs. Sponsors for the month of February are:- Penny Black, Stampalot, Crafts U Love, and Flonz. You can enter using any stamped image but strictly no digis.
 For my card I used some lovely pink Christmas papers and  a piece of white card which I had embossed. I tore a strip of tree paper and glittered the edges.  This and a piece of the torn tree paper were glued in place across my card to give some texture and depth. I used my Bigshot to cut the swirly Christmas tree and the snowflakes are hand punched. Along with my Promarker coloured  and glittered Penny Black image, I used a metal star, a sentiment and pearls to finish it off. Pearls have to be my favourite embellishment at the moment. They come in so many different colours and sizes to suit all types of card or project.
My Christmas card box for this year is totally empty so this is my first card ready for Christmas.  I hope you like it.
I have entered my card into several challenges listed below.
