Back in action with Tuesday Throwdown!

Ahhh, it was nice to get a break from stamping committments but I am ready and raring to go for 2010!

Today it's an all new Sherrod Studio Tuesday Throwdown!! We are changing things up a bit and each month, a different DT member will be issuing the challenges for the month. This month our lovely hostess is Leah who is challenging us this week to create a gatefold card.
























I used the set Rock and Roll and created this simple but unique card that would be a great any-occasion card. The DP is something I have had for-eveh and I kept the image a single color so the overall look wouldn't be too busy. The ribbon wraps around the card to hold everything closed. Here's a peek inside:

















Ah, see that cool fold? Inside are two more images from the same set. I think this card will be reserved for a nephew's birthday this year.

Want to play along? All you have to do is try your hand at a gatefold card and then upload it to your blog or other online gallery. Then head over to the Sherrod Studio blog and leave a link so we can check out your work. Oh and be sure to check out what the rest of the team created for this challenge. There are links to their blogs over in the column to your right.

I'll be back tomorrow with another post - until then, have a creative day!
