Roses for Christmas

I had a request for a Christmas card for a special individual... I went back to a sketch that I have used before expect that I turned the card into a 6x6 size as several people will be signing the inside. 

The rose and leaf dies are from Kaisercraft and are layered dies. There are three layers so I wanted to use three close shades of red to create the flowers. I chose Cranberry for the base, Candy Apple for the middle layer and Poppy for the top. I outlined the top two layers with a gold shimmer brush but that wasn't picked up in the photo. I also brushed the leaves with the same shimmer brush. 

The patterned papers are from the 'Tis the Season paper pack, along with some gold fold paper.
