Here is my Guest Designer card for the Victoria Case Challenge Blog! Victoria has some fab Digi Stamps and some freebies for you to try too! She also has a great collection of Rubber Stamps. So why not pop over to her store and take a look HERE.
The theme for this weeks challenge is Brown & Blue I thought this image called Western heat was perfect. Papers are a mix or BasicGrey Boxer but for the smaller strip I used a free canon download. Stickyback denim was from my local craft shop with my poor attempt at stitching to make a pocket. Brads and ribbon from stash. I wanted to keep the layout quite simple as the image says it all.
