Less is More Week 75 - Colour

Good morning all, hope you are having a nice weekend and are not too soggy and waterlogged.  Thoughts are with all of those who have been flooded.

I was late last week in entering the Less is More challenge only posting up on Friday!  So have got my crafty finger out this morning and am joining in the fun early for a change!!!  This week's challenge is:-

It's amazing that we've managed to come up with different shades for each of our colour challenges without resorting to bizarre combinations and here is yet another simple choice... it's

It can be shiny or matt, but we'd like it to be unmistakably gold!

WOW Embossing Powder
In July we are fortunate to have WOW Embossing Powders as our sponsor once more. The prize is a fabulous caddy of 12 powders. This time WOW have also offered a special offer of purchasing the caddy at half price when buying 12 powders.
Any of their range of gold powders would be perfect for this challenge!!!

So here is my card

 The background stamp is by WOW: Vintage Wallpaper and I used WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder
 I just love this button, at first I wasn't sure about the black bit in the middle but decided I like it!!

 My sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.

Hopefully you can see clearly that its definitely gold!!! LOL

I'll be behind Andy Murray this afternoon at Wimbledon - although I do also like Roger Federer.  We should be on for a great match.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you are doing.

Until next time...

Happy Crafting
