Golden Sparkle - Colour Q #241

Hello bloggers!

Where has the week gone? I can't believe I haven't had the chance to get crafty since the last Colour Q challenge. I wish someone had told me that when the kids go to school, you're actually busier.  How on earth does that work?

There's a striking colour combo for this week's challenge which gives you the chance to add a bit of golden sparkle to your project:

I based my card on the simple sketch over at Retro Sketches.  I substituted Soft Sky for Pool Party and stamped a Hero Arts flower background with some added gold embossing. I thought that stamp went perfectly with the crayon-like flower from SU's Flower Shop.  A couple of die cut swirls and some gold embossed WMS leaves and I was all done.  The chocolate chip background paper is some older SU designer paper...it goes so well with the different shades of blue.

So get your sparkly stuff out - sequins....embossing powder....papers and link up to the latest challenge. Don't forget to pop over to the rest of the DT for some crafty inspiration!

Thanks for looking,
