Come to me, I'll take your burden...Come to me, I'll give you rest...

Welcome to the May Diva Inspirations Blog Hop! I'm excited to show you my project today. I picked up this frame at the Target Dollar Spot a while back, and I knew I wanted to do something fun with it for this month's hop.


It's a tiny little space...the inside is only about 3.5" square. I cut a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock and layered on a pattern from Basic Grey's Curio collection. The Matthew 11:28 Plain Jane is stamped in Early Espresso onto Rustic cream, and the edges were distressed a bit. Some bling from Zva Creative and Seam binding finished it off! Here's a closer look at the details:
