Addicted to CAS - Challenge # 44

Happy Saturday everyone - hope you are all well and looking forward to our latest challenge over at Addicted to CAS.  This week your hostess is the "oh, so creative" Deepti of Dee's Art Utopia.  Here is the code word she has chosen for us.

Our Sponsor for this challenge is:

 StampArt Design
Prize is 5 free digis

We are thrilled to have Lyndal (Ideas and Paper) join us as Guest Designer for August --- welcome Lyndal!

"Hi ATCAS fans, Lyndal here from Melbourne, Australia! So thrilled to have been invited along as a Guest Designer for August. 
Back in 2011 when my daughter and her friend thought they'd like to have a stall at their school fair, and I offered to make a few cards, I had no idea what an amazing on-line community it would lead me to.  I love getting crafty and my style ranges from Clean and Simple to messy and complicated, but I always seem to be drawn back to CAS. 
Hope you have as much fun playing along with Addicted to CAS this month as I have - can't wait to see what you create!"

Well, what are you going to make of this challenge word???  GOLD - this can cover so much.  Anyway, here's my contribution:

I've used my Our Daily Bread Quatrefoil die and backed it with some dull gold cardstock.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The sentiment is from a Waltzingmouse set stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz.  Gold liquid pearls add the finishing touch.

We're really looking forward to seeing your creations and visiting your blogs.

Happy crafting.
