Victoria Case Challenge Guest Designer Card!

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.

Here is the card with the matching gift box that I decided to make but I couldn't get a good photo of them both together.
