Crafty Calendar and Roses on Paper

I found this card on my return home - I made it following the Stamp with Fun theme of creating a scene, but did a 'Bev' and missed the deadline. I've hunted round and found that it fits both  Roses on Paper  and  Crafty Calendar Challenge and thanks to Stephanne A Spoonful of Sugar - how lucky am I??

I used Magnolia's Tilda and Edwin skating from last years winter collection and the Winter House background, also Magnolia. They are coloured with a mixture of Copics and distress inks. The frame is cut with the EK Success Scalloped Scallop punch, the sentiment is Inkadinkado and stamped with a snowflake stamp of unknown origin and overlayed with a snowflake glitter acetate. The ribbon is from stash. I made a couple of alterations - I added a pin with some beads and a tree charm and a glittery snowflake cut with the Spellbinders Build a Snowflake 1 which I got with my win from Simon Says challenge.
