BSS IDEA - A Red Red Rose

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Wow, how about the high winds this past week!  We were fortunate, lost
our cable TV  for two days due to downed trees and 
wires on our street, but no loss of power.  Relatives in the Rochester
area still had no power as of Sunday. 

Cottage Cutz has come out with these wonderful Stamp and Die sets
with a flower stamp and matching die for every month of the year.
I chose the Rose, month of June.

Here is the card I made this week.

This is beautiful! I love that deep red in your DSP, cardstock and your coloring. It's really impressive against the white.

Sue, this is just gorgeous. I love the main image and it is beautifully colored but I also like the leaf paper (or stamping) on the top portion of your card. Just as lovely as can be.
Hope you don't get hit with this blizzard that we are getting today. If I'm quiet it will be because of power outages that they are saying we may get. Stay warm and let Keeya catch those snowflakes.
