A spiral of Christmas wishes

CAS colours and sketches have a fun challenge. It's to choose one of their colour challenges from this past year and turn it into a seasonal card
 
 
I choose the one from March
 
 
and made this card
 
 
Initially I drew the spiral by hand in pencil then I wrote the sentiment in metallic gel pen and went over the spiral with a liquid roller ball glue pen. Lastly I added the glitter. They where fun to make.
