Two birds with one stone

In Sweden we don't use that expression, we say "to hit two flies in one smack", which in my world makes more sense cause the only birds I would consider killing would be magpies and I wouldn't dream of trying to hit them with a rock :)

Anyway, since Penny Black Saturday Challenge has swirls as this week's challenge and Susi & Vikki's Christmas Club has snowflakes I figured I would try to combine them and below is the result.

I used the vintage digi paper from Bearly Mine Designs, just bought them, love them horribly! Distress inks used; Aged Mahogany, Weathered Wood, Chipped Sapphire, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen.
