In My Pocket Challenge

Hello!

Week 2 of the In My Pocket Challenge (here) and this week we're `coining it in'! Dont know what came over me but I've gone a bit morbid for this challenge!

I've used 7 Gypsies `morocco' paper to cover the front and I've put on a grungeboard skull and cross bones and then drawn in the gallows.



Then inside at the top I've used another 7 Gypsies paper to decorate it with and then printed the text `Money for Old Rope. Apparently this saying comes from the old days when there were public hangings. The hangman was supposed to keep the rope but apparently he used to cut it up and sell it to the crowd - nice!!! Anyway, I attached a bit of old rope (well, string!) and then below are my coins along with a very sad looking face! I said it was a bit morbid didn't I!!!!



Hope you like it and thanks for looking xxx
