Tuesday Throwdown- Swirls and Pearls

We are creating using Swirls and Pearls at Tuesday Throwdown this week.

 Our Sponsor for the Challenge is Sweet n Sassy Stamps. We were given digi's to create with, and I chose the Christmas Puppy and I added a sentiment from the Christmas Greetings Digi set.
 Can you see the swirls in the die? The die, Mini Medallion, is a Sweetcuts die, and I cut it out using old wrapping paper- recycling : )  The image is colored with Copic markers, and I added Stardust Gelly Roll pen for sparkle. The big die by Spellbinders is cut and then the die is placed back over the image and the edges are sponged with Ranger Barn Door ink.
 The background DP has clear embossed snowflakes- and is by MME. The stripes are Imaginsce and is called Peppermint Stick. The brown cardstock is by Bazzill. The trim is from Tim Holtz.

My dog is named Peanut- he was  a winner this weekend- OSU vs MSU- he had it covered......My hubby did this to him.  Our oldest daughter went to OSU, our youngest is a senior at MSU.   He would look so cute in a Christmas stocking : )

I used the Sketch from Sketch Saturday for my card.

Shelly, your card is so pretty! I love the design and patterned paper and that die is gorgeous!! Just perfect for this little pup!
Speaking of pups.....Peanut is so adorable and I'd take him home with me whether he was a winner or not! Know what you mean about the rivalry of schools as my son and daughter in law go through the same!
Cute card, Cute puppy, Wonderful post!
