Nothing square about me

Didn't think I'd see myself making a WOW card any time soon but I did (nearly!).

White circular scalloped card has been embossed with a scalloped nestie, nestie circle cut out of pearlised card and embossed with Swiss dots folder, Marianne Design mat cut out of pearlised card then layered up a poinsettia digi from Beccy's Place. Card is finished with some stickles, a stamped sentiment, a bow and a white pearl.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - anything goes ( week 27 colour of your flag)
ABC Christmas - S is for shape plus spots or stripes
The Hotspot - WOW (colour allowed in ribbon and sentiment)
Sparkles Forum - white plus one
Totally Gorjuss - not square
