Altered burlap panel

Good evening , a huge welcome to my 40th follower Vanessa - who happens to be a big fan of g45 and awesome crafter.
I thought I would share a altered tim holtz burlap panel that I have made using Graphic 45 Tropical travelogue and a few other bits. Im going to enter this into Rhedds creative spirit

I have had this 12x12 pad for over 2 years and had never cut into it. I was saving it for a special occasion lol.
Hope that you like it aswell. Have a fantastic evening & thanks for looking
Hugs Elaine
