Swirls and Pearls

Hi all I am a day late but this is the card I have made for the Christmas Card Club the theme of Swirls and Pearls has been chosen by Hazel.
I have used Bearly Mine bp with all lovely swirls on I added a die cut cut also with swirls on at the bottom, I used a scalloped circle Nestie which I distressed with some TH ink, I used a stamped image of Tilda that was sent to me by blogging buddy Cebelica, I coloured Tilda with Copics then cut her out and 3'd her with foam pads, i added pearls around the scallop.
This is the first card I have made for a week, since my little Polo had his teeth done I have not been well, I think everything just caught up with me and I folded.
I am feeling a bit more my normal self today and look forward to seeing you all.
Thank you once again for your loyal support and friendship.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thank you so much for visiting, I know I have missed so much but I am going to try and catch up over the next few days.
Hugs to all.

Lorraine, what a lovely card. Sorry to hear you haven't been well. Unfortunately stress of Polo had its impact as it would on any loving mum so it's understandable you had to take some time out to get over it and spend with Polo. Hope Polo is enjoying some extra hugs from his mum and I'll send a bucket load of cyber hugs for him as well. Take care, Kym xxx

So glad Polo is feeling better and you can craft again. I know how hard it is to be creative when you are not feeling like doing much because you feel worried or down. I haven't done much of anything this week except miss Max.
Your card is so darling. I love this flying Tilda. She is adorable. Great cloud you created as well.
