Truly Scrumptious DT - no Ooopsies!!

Here's my this week's effort for our challenge at Truly Scrumptious.  I used Siku & Shuya, one of Mo's fabulous images, coloured them with Copics and cut them out with the Spellbinders round nesties. The papers are Kar's X-mas Collection (the red and green spot) and the Mistletoe (which I thought was so right for the image) is by Magnolia. The band is cut with the MS lattice punch, the swirl with a Sizzix die and the sentiment is computer generated. The fabulous sketch this week is by Debbie, and the optional extra is a sparkly flourish. Rather than go for the flourish gems I thought I would sparkly up a flourish with some Jones Tones crystals, it looks quite good IRL but hasn't photographed well at all - might change this, and the snowflake which on screen looks rather pathetic.

EDITED
I've altered this card now - re-done the swirls with good old Stickles and put a different snowflake on it - much better me thinks. It has also photographed much better in daylight (the bulbs for my light tent have both gone and I'm struggling to get more).
I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says challenge which is 'Winter Love' - could you find a better example of this than Mo's adorable image.
