What a lovely friend is Biggly giving Patch a tow!!!
This is one of these images I feel leaves a CAS style and let the image should take 'main stage'  - I have used it before with lots of embellishments but I do much prefer Less is More!!!
As our theme this week is Twine I used to thread twine through the image to give Biggly towing Patch - I used October Afternoon Farmhouse Wrap Pack which is a thicker twine, it is grey so I coloured it blue with copics.
I've use Copics for the image and used the Simon Says Stamps - Die & Thanks stamp for the sentiment.
I used the twine and added them together with a  Impression Obsesssion Buttons die, which is the same colour of the border papers but looks grey ????
