I coloured the image with a mix of flexmarkers & promarkers.
I distressed the edges, then further distressed with a flame 
for the singed look.

I made the sentiment on my pc.
Do you like the play on words? Very punny eh???

here is a side view. The DP I have used is from the
 First Edition Hideaway stack.
The twine is recycled from a clothes tag!

I decorated the inside to match with a singed panel to write on!
I do so like setting fire to things! lol
