Baby It's Cold Outside

Happy Monday! The last time I checked we had made it up to 0! It was -8 when I got up this morning. Tonight it's supposed to be -14 as a low. The wind chill makes it even colder. Last night a blue moon must have occurred because Indiana University closed all campuses for today.  I can count on one hand the number of times IU has closed for anything. So I got a free day from work. So crafting is what I am doing.

This is a card I made using a new Spellbinder's Mbossabilities folder that I bought in a clearance sale. I love the pattern. I rubbed the embossing with another color of green ink to make the embossing stand out. I colored the rose (from my stash) with Copics. I used a few new rolls of washi tape also. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up! set called Small Script. It was one of the first sets I ever bought from Stampin' Up! I stamped and cut the sentiment from the same color as the background and then embossed it and lined it up with the background. I like this one. I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today! I do hope you are warm and dry wherever you are. At least we have a gorgeous winter wonderland outside. Hope your week is off to a great start.

Love that embossing folder. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for that one! Your entire card is really nice. The pop of red is fantastic!
I'm just north of you in Indy so I'm sharing your frozen misery. Enough already, right? Spring just can't get here soon enough!
