Southwest Pottery ...

Good morning! It's the first of the month, and that means a New Challenge over at the House of Cards starts today. This month we have a Theme/Color Challenge for you ... Gatefold and/or use the Colors in our Inspiration Photo to create your project this month. 

I went with a Gatefold card with a slight twist, mine opens from the top and bottom.

I haven't water-colored in a while, so I pulled out my Art Impression Stamps to create the western scene for today's card. I still need a LOT of practice but I enjoyed playing with the AI Southwest and Roving Rocks stamps.

My sizing is a little off on the flaps that open, but I love how my card turned out.

Here's a look at the card when its open ...
