Cold Weather Here to Stay

Holy crap it's COLD.  -27 this morning when I went off to work.  I didn't see it get over -22 today, and right now it's back down to -27.  Can only image what it will be by morning.  Baked some cupcakes this afternoon, having the oven on just added more heat in the house.

My card today is one layer.  What a challenge, but I had fun with this one.  I started by stamping the flower in the center, and stamping it again on a piece of plain paper, to cut out for a mask. I then placed the mask over the flower and stamped the script with frayed burlap distress ink.  Before removing the mask I distressed around the flower with tumbled glass distress ink. I then removed the mask, and colored in with pencil crayons.  And stamped the Thank you with black ink.
