Roses all the way Frugal 11.

This  is my penultimate  card for Nessa's Frugal Christmas card competition. The idea is that you make a card using stash that is not Christmas orientated. Christmas dies and stamps are not allowed  but you can use paper and a Christmas sentiment if you choose.
So what have I pulled out of my stash today to use?
Well there is the usual blank card and blank card stock.
Cream card stock, Britannia word dies.
Xcut  Ornate frame, Sizzix swirl die, Colour Box chalks
Spellbinders flower die and a leaf die.
Here is my card
Christmas Roses. 
 Entering into the following challenges:
Frugal Christmas Card competition: Using non Christmas items.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #91: Use up your snippets.(odds of white card for flowers).
Inspire Me Fridays #122: Anything goes..
Jingle Belles: Not square or rectangle.
Happy Campers #22: Show us your flowers.
Make My Monday: Flowers or trees.
Everybody Art #246: Roses.
City Crafter #178: Flower power.
