A Simply Sentimental Card

This week's JustRite Friday challenge is direct to rubber.   I used Marvy markers on the sentiment, brown and burgundy intermingled on the stamp.  I don't have any of the new frilly JR border stamps yet, so I used the marker to ink the corner from one of the square borders of the Hope set and stamped each corner individually.  Colored some tiny rhinestones with Copic marker to match.  The OCC challenge is to get wordy...use a sentiment stamp to make the background or a layer.  I used a SU! word for the layer behind the sentiment panel.  I followed the sketch at Craft Your Days Away, and cut the card shape using Grand Labels One.  The little tea-time charms are from my stash.

Beautiful work - love the vintage feel to it. Super job on using the square border stamp for the the corners. I have that set and was wondering if that is what you did. I like the way it looks - will have to give it a try - thanks for the inspiration! Wonderful job on the Get Wordy challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
