Less is More #301


For our first challenge of November at Less is More we are looking for cards that use the colour combination of purple and gold.  You can't go wrong with these rich, luxurious colours :)

First up I made a card using the beautiful mandala stamp from Uniko's October release - Marvellous Mehndi.  I gold embossed it and popped the white card panel up over a strip of purple card stock.  The sentiment is also from one of the Uniko Simply Said sets.

 Purple and gold seems like a perfect colour combo for Christmas cards and I really need to be getting on with mine!  here is a card that I made using a die from Penny Black.  I layered the wreath in purple card and gold mirri and added the bow too.  The sentiment is gold embossed and is from Clearly Besotted.  I really like how this turned could be a design that I repeat for my Christmas cards this year.

I would have made more cards with this wonderful colour combo but, as ever, time was against me so 2 will have to do this week!  Do check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT - they always have something amazing to share over at Less is More :)
