Shopping Our Stash #142 - Sentiment(s) Only

This week's theme on SHOPPING OUR STASH is "Sentiment(s) Only." This week we want to see a card that features a sentiment. Be sure to visit the blog for all the details on this challenge and to show my SOS teammies some crafty love.

Here's my card for the project, I knew right away what stamp / sentiment(s) I wanted to use.

This is a pretty simple card to make, kraft base, white layer distressed and inked, layer of burlap (also distressed), sentiment layer (yep more distressing and inking) and VOILA!!! The most difficult part if getting the burlap to stick to the paper....double sided tape to the rescue.

Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
Whisper White cardstock (SU)
Piece of burlap (from an old card kit)
Phrases 1 stamp set (Tim Holtz)
Frayed burlap ink (Tim Holtz)

Oh, yeah, I use Sookwang tape (or red line tape) to secure all my fabrics. Now I want to play with the miles of burlap I have. Watch out! :)
