A Spoon Full of Sugar - challenge 61

Late again, apologies to the girls for todays post being late, but I had a panic call from my dad this morning wanting us to go over as he wasn't feeling too good. I've mentioned before that he suffers with depression, he has been having some good days, but we think today after hearing that a neighbour/friend had gone into intensive care after being knocked over by his dog (he's only a little man and the dog is a great dane, I always say he could ride them and looks like a jockey walking a horse) trigger something and in his own words 'just doesn't feel right'. So we headed off and spent the day with him.

Anyhow back to this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge which this week is 'swirls', we would like to see swirls on your work, this can be die-cuts, stamps, papers, anything swirly!
For my card I have used a neglected Sugar Nellie stamp, and stuck to a blue and white theme, my swirls are stamped and I had a go at paper piercing although not too successful I think it looks ok!We are sponsored by Squiggle Stamps and Tracy has very kindly donated a lovely bundle of goodies including 2 stamps, papers, ribbons, flowers and more! Drop by the blog and see the full prize details and fabulous examples the rest of the girls have made.

I am also entering this card for 3 other challenges which are :
1) Dutch Dare = Dies or punches (my flowers)
2) Colour Create = Blue and white
3) Secret Crafter = Spots and stripes
