DCD Christmas Club - DT - Use a Die Cut

This card won at icopic Challenges!!!

Here is my card for this weeks DCD Christmas Challenge. The challenge is to Use a Die Cut. So here is my take on that challenge.
I used this gorgeous image, Tree Fairy, created by my fellow DT member, Roberta. ISnt it just the cutest thing you have ever seen??? Roberta is uber talented, and I am honored to use this gorgeous image in one of my creations!
So, I used my cricut to cut out the scalloped oval frame, which are my die cuts on this card. I added sticky back pearls to the scallops for some added fun!
I added four brads to my card, the pearls at the top and bottom corners are brads.
Well, of course, I added lots of roses. I glimmer misted them in Scarlet and Walnut Gold to match the design paper and image.
As a side note, I had disaster strike while creating this card. I toppled over a bottle of Scarlet Glimmer mist while I was painting my large rose!!!!!! :( It spilled all over my craft desk, ruining some of the things I have been working on. LUCKILY, this baby only got touched a bit, and I was able to cover some of the areas that got ruined. FYI, always screw the lid on tight to your glimmer mist, and be careful! It could have been much worse than it was. There is a tiny dot near the bow that is the spilled glimmer mist. At least it has character, right???!!!
