Pure Gold

Hi All,

Well I eventually managed to get a card made this afternoon, in between running back and forth from my craft room to watch the tennis.  What an achievement for Andy Murray in reaching the Wimbledon final, it was a fantastic game and there's always next year!

Okay, onto my card which is for the Less is More Challenge and this week Chrissie and Mandi have chosen the colour GOLD.



I embossed the Stampin Up Very Vintage roller in gold, cut two Tim Holtz Florals in gold miri and embossed one. The centre of the flower is a gold chain from a necklace stuck down with some Glossy Accents.

I have to say I think gold and white make a very classy combination, can't wait to see what all you other LIMettes have created.

Have a great week everyone.
Thanks for  coming to visit.

Suze xx

Hi Suze
Definitely elegant and could be used for so many occasions.
I need to start growing my fingernails after watching the Final - he achieved so much but sad to see him in tears.
