Christmas roses

Good morning! It's time for a new challenge in The Emerald Faeries Challenge Blog. This time we want to see a tag on your project. So the challenge for this fortnight is "use a tag"

I thought I'll try to make a Christmas card with non-Christmas image and with non-Christmas colors (well there is a bit of green on it but I think it doesn't remind Christmas as much).
I made a hidden tag to my card. If you pull from the snowflakes above the image, you'll see a Christmas greeting: "Have a beautiful Christmas time"

Background is embossed with embossing folder and I added some color to it with distress ink. Matting layers are colored with ProMarkers (Cool Aqua and Powder Blue).
I used Bunch of Roses digi stamp from A & T Design. It is so gorgeous image. I colored the image with ProMarkers and added lots of Stickles to it and everywhere on the card. My idea was that the glitter looks like frost on the roses. Rose in the middle is cut out and added with foam tape.

Inside of the card is very simple. Just added one die-cut shape and two leftover roses two the corners. And lots of Sticles again on to flowers. It's sad that all this glitter won't show on the the photo but I think I'm not alone with this problem.
