Roses On Paper Challenge #15 - Gate card including stitching

Hello everyone! Although I am located in Canada, but wish you a Happy Indenpendence Day! After a few days break, I managed to finish a card for the Roses on Paper Challenge. This challenge is for a gate fold card incorporating stitching somewhere on the card. The stitches could be sewing, hand stitches, faux stitches with pens or rub on, etc.
Since sewing is not my best area, I choose to use my rub on stitches tape (by Daisy D's). As usual, I colored Tilda with Copic markers. The snowflake punchies were made by the Martha Stewart snowflake punch. For each snowflake on the right side, I put 2 different colors and put them together with foam adhesive, then adhered a 1/2 back pearl in the middle. For the Tilda image, beside the copic markers, I've used the stickle on her wings and dotted the middle of the mini snowflakes. Used of liquid applique for the pom pom of her hat & fur on her boots. I didn't really decorate too much for the inside, but instead just to emboss the inside panels, so that it wouldn't be too plain.
Here it is:
