House Warming Card & Gift Card Holder

This is a card that doubles as a gift card holder.  There is a pocket on the inside for a gift card.  It is for a house warming gift.

Front sentiment:  Home sweet home.

Inside Sentiment:  Congratulations on your home.

This scene was created with stamps, ink and watercolor.  I made a couple of these for practice and have a mess to clean up.  Still learning but having fun with it.

This is entered into the Unity {be inspired} Color challenge 16 for May / June 2014.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Company stamps from Welcome Home Itty Bitty (the house) and Heartfelt Sentiments (for the inside sentiment) and mini clothes pin (free Unity gift), watercolor paper & brushes, Sakura Koi watercolor paint, My Creative Time die, Say It In English Home Sweet Home stamps, ribbon, punch and Ranger ink.

Enjoy you day.   :)
