This is what I came up with, I found a digi stamp of an old fashioned rugby ball, I coloured it using Promakers in Cocoa, Caramel and Satin. For the background I tore some sections from an old book and used chalk and ink to distress the edges. I cut the frame from some thick gold card using a Nellie Snellen frame die. I used parcel twine and an old brass coloured button from my stash to finish off.
