Hoedown At Desert Sands

Good Morning Lovely Bloggers!
Here I am again with a card this time! Yay!!!
This is for the Hoedown at Just Inklined!
Have you heard about their brand new wild Western digital stamps?

The image I have used is Desert Sands. I have also used Tickets from
Just Inklined. I used a blank ticket to which I added my own text.
The base card is Kraft to which I added a matt of checked card.

Here's a closer look!

We all know it's hot out there in the desert & things get burned, right?
My image was no exception!
I coloured it up with a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers then
I set fire to the edges, putting it out before the smoke detector went off! lol
The DP is from my stash. I've had it for absolutely ages. Not sure
 who it's by!All I can tell you about it is that it's travel related!
I also added a strip of faux leather which I studded with brads,
a length of twine a little star charm & two large brads which have
all been in my stash for ages! 
I'm trying to use lots of stuff up to make room for some new supplies!

Thanks for stopping by! I always enjoy your visits!
