Instead of using the optional theme of Autumn with Tiets' Sketch for the Sugar Bowl Challenge 45 I have used the Warm Christmas Colours of the Sugar Nellie Paper Craft Planet Challenge Wk 24. As usual I have replaced the text on the sketch - this time with a swirl.

The girl's dress & hair ribbon as well as the ribbon around the flower pot are paper pieced.

Cardstock Forever Friends Gift Wrapped A4 Double-sided Textured Cardstock; Mirri & coloured cardstock from "stash".
Paper Forever Friends Santa's On His Way... A4 Paper Pack (paper piecing).
Punches, Dies etc... EK Success (Swirl Flourish), Spellbinders Nestabilities (Large Deckled Rectangles), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots).
