Arty Girlz - Squares

Brilliant challenge today, squares. I got this stamp 5 or 6 weeks ago, & although I have stamped it a few times, I have never used it in its entirety. Each time that I have used it, it has been in black & to be cut up into 9 individual tiny images to be then cut diagonally to be used as photo corners, page corners or even squares mounted on foam as elements instead of pebbles. So today I got the chance to stamp the whole thing & use my new Versamagic chalk ink, tea leaves. I wanted a simple ornate card that would suit every occasion as right now, I have every Xmas card made that I need (they are even all written & enveloped ready for 1st Dec!!) & today has been spent making gifts for people, which obviously I can't blog until after 25th Dec. No peaking allowed!
The corner stamps are Studio G, clear stamps & the paper is an offcut from DCWV luxury stack, edges inked in tea leaves.
I sell all the cards I make as a rule, but I never make xmas cards.I find by the time I have made my own Im sick of them & I certainly won't be selling this card either!
EDITED TO ADD.... I forgot to add a link to the stamp when I posted this card earlier! Crafty Individuals scrolls.
