Mo's Digital Pencil Too Challenge --- Swirls and Flourishes

I have two posts today to get my challenges in on time --- actually, just under the wire.  Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful! I was able to get away for five days and see some of my family and meet my son's future in-laws. The joining of Scott and Paula's lives also joins our families, and I am already crazy about Paula's parents and aunt.  I'll meet her brother later.  Good times ahead!

Back to business here:  Mo Manning's challenge this week is to use swirls and flourishes.  This was great because it gave me a chance to break out my Cricut again.  I don't use it nearly as much as I should and I found some beautiful flourishes I didn't know I had in my arsenal!  Here is my card:

Meet North Pole employee #5533 available at Digital Pencil Too.  What's not to love about this adorable elf?  She is colored with Copics.  The dp is from The Paper Studio and the buttons and embellies came in a big bag of goodies I bought last year at Hobby Lobby.  The swirls are from the Cricut Home Accents cartridge.  I love the shadow feature that gave me perfectly matched swirls in two colors.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday week and are well on your way to a Christmas filled with blessings and lots of love.  Thanks for stopping by!
