Swirls and Pearls - FFFC #130

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays as much as we did. After spending Christmas with our family, my daughter and I took a few vacation days and travelled to New York. We were able to disconnect from the day to day routine and most importantly, we share a lot of time together, we had a blast! And now, back to reality, I returned to work last Wednesday and I have been busy as a bee!
Well my friends, it is Friday, so it is time for a new Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge, our theme for this fortnight is Pearls and Swirls and it is hosted by the lovely and talented Norma. The challenge is sponsored by Aurora Wings. Have you seen their images? Absolutely gorgeous! Lets take a look at my card using Aurora Wings' Hydrangea Sprite from the Big Eyes Collection. Hope you enjoy it.
