Less Is More Week 75 Colour - Gold

My first blog for over a month; and what a rollercoaster of a month it's been.
Had a fab day out at Royal Ascot for Ladies Day on 21st June with 6 of my girlfriends; mixing with the 'A' listers and quaffing champers is something I could definitely get used to lol!!! Then had a fab week's holiday in Devon (Croyde Bay), where we actually managed to get some sun and I achieved another of my 'things to do when I'm 40' and went on a horse riding trek with the girls.

Then after the highs came a massive dip; last Friday my world came crashing down when my Mom was taken to the Critical Care Unit of our local hospital following an operation to insert a rod into her broken femur (leg bone). She has had an extremely tough battle but I am glad to post, that despite numerous complications, she is slowly improving.  
Hence the reason I have missed 3 LIM weeks :( But I'm back with a late entry for this week's 'Gold' challenge.

Stamps: Flower outline magazine freebie, Personal Impressions 'Double Sayings'
Dies: Dienamics 'Fishtail flag stax', Labels 22, Stampin Up butterfly
Ink: DI 'Brushed Courdroy'
Embossing Folder: 'Jules Jewels'
Other: Gold embossng powder, pattened paper, Antique gold card

The sketch I used was based on one I had in my head for last week's 'Header' challenge but never got round to executing.

I also made this one but wasn't sure it was 'gold enough'......
