Southwestern Look for Mojo Monday

Hello, I guess I have been MIA again from my blog, sorry it has been hectic and then I also got sick.
Today I have a card to share with you that I made for this weeks Mojo Monday sketch #322.  I love the way it turned out.
A couple of weeks ago I got some Tim Holtz Distress Paints and started to play around with them creating some papers.  I should know better than to watch his videos because I have to have whatever he demonstrates, he is amazing.
The background paper is one I made using the distress paints. In person it has a bit of a sparkle to it because I misted it with Tattered Angels.
The colors reminded me of southwestern colors so I went with that theme.  I mated the background paper on dark purple to pick up the purple that is in there.
The copper strip across the middle I did using one of my MS punches, then added a double layer of ribbon.
I stamped the pot on vellum and heat it embossed it with brass.
I will add a sentiment later when I decide how I will use it, but all and all I am happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping to take a peak.
