Going for the Gold

It's Merry Monday time again. 

And this week's card is also playing in the Less is More challenge.  This week it's a colour challenge.


Here's the scoop on Merry Monday in July. (From Lesley at Always Playing with Paper)

This month is going to be a bit different for the Merry Monday Challenge!!!  I have decided to shut down my computer for a bit and to take a blogging vacation. I still want to encourage you to make 4 Christmas cards this month, so I am challenging you to use any of the past Merry Monday Sketches and create 4 cards this month. 
  1. Link up one per week OR MORE IF YOU WOULD LIKE!
  2. The linky will close on Sunday, July 29th at Noon.
  3. At the end of the month, I will choose 4 winners who will be Guest Designers at a future date.

Here's the sketch I chose....

There were so many sketches that I loved, but this was my very favorite.

Here's a link to all the sketches  you can choose from.

Let's not lose momentum on getting those Christmas cards done.  And do go over to Less is More for a golden treat.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamps:  Christmas Blessings
Ink:  Encore Gold
Paper:  Very Vanilla, hammered gold (maker unknown)
