Less Is More ~ Gold

 Afternoon.....I'm not sure if i have already mentioned youngest Emma has moved out... flown the nest and i now have a craftroom....squeal!!! I am still organising at the moment but I had to stop and make a card for this weeks challenge over on

It is a colour challenge this week which is "Gold"
I've not heat embossed in ages so perfect opportunity to get the embossing powders out
I stamped Viva Decor My Paper House text stamp using Versamark and then applied Gold
embossing powder and heat set onto pearl card from The Papeterie 

I have added Martha Stewart and Cuttlebug Butterflies which are punched and cut from gold Pearl card also from The Papeterie

Right back to the organising....finding things I had forgotten that i had :O) it's like christmas....squeal!

Thanks for stopping by....much appreciated!
