Roses are Red

Dear Ones~
Well, I just spent the day at Hobby Lobby with my BFF, Pat. Life does not get any better, love girl time with my Bestie.

Today's card was made for several challenges, they are listed below. A couple of them ask us to use red or red and white.  LOVE those colors together.

Here is my card:

I really liked making this card. I recently won a gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations, so I decided on the Botanical Rose stamp set, and of course I had to get the matching dies. LOVE that so many stamps have companion dies now. Here I just heat embossed with white on the GKD Red Hot Card Stock, and then I sponged with GKD Cherry Red Ink to deepen the edges. I love how they turned out.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Red Hot and White Card Stocks
My Minds Eye Penny Lane Patterned Paper
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Heartfelt Creations Potanical Rose Stamps and Dies
GKD Beyond the Sea Stamp Set for Greeting
GKD White Embossing Powder
Judy Dots and Stash Ribbon

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
Double "D" Challenges - Red and White 
Dies R Us - Use Red 
Scrappy Land - Tie One On, use a Bow 
Sparkle and Sprinkle - Use Either Glitter or Embossing Powder

MFT Sketch Challenge - Sketch #268

So I guess that's it for me. Himself brought home a season of Boston Legal from the library. Have any of you ever watched that TV series? We are addicted to it. Used to love that show back in the day. So guess I'm off to watch Denny You have to have watched the show to know who I'm talking about.  Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!!
