FSS Christmas Roses - Midnight Madness #77

I have a fabulous sketch and image to share with you today.
I started with one of the Pre Colored images in this set from "Fred She Said", called Christmas Rose. This is ONE of my favorite sets and there are many. There is also a candle with the rose which you may see tomorrow.

The sketch is from #77 from Midnight Madness. Priscilla gives us two sketchs to work with. A plain and a fancy. Well, mine is in between the two.

The papers are from the Mistletoe paper pack from Close to my Heart. I then Hand Stitched it with red Embroidery Floss.

I just started building my card from there. The rose portion was actually printed twice and one set cut out and layered for more dimension.

I used a pine sprig punch for two of the corners and colored some white pearls with a copic marker to match the card for the other two corners. I then added tiny white pearls on either side of the Merry Christmas.
Red Stickles was dotted on the red berries in the image.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for:
Creative Card Crew - Let's Punch It!
Tuesday Throwdown - Sentiment as the main focus
Flourishes - No Buttons or Bows
Christmas Card Challenge - Use Flowers
