Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #25 - Goldfinger

This is my second attempt at making a card for Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. I love waiting to see the sneak peeks and guessing what movie it will be and have even roped in my dear friend Carolann ( ) to do the same each week!! This week she was pretty close to the mark with her guesses and hopefully she'll make a card too...hint hint Carolann!

Having a house full of males, Bond films are part of our movie library and my husband really enjoys the action and the odd pretty woman that they provide...I must say that most of the lead actors who have played Bond are pretty good eye candy too for me....a personal favourite is definitely Mr Connery.

My card has a definite British flavour. I have embossed using gold and using a stampin' up wheel. The little Union Jack flag, London bus, Underground sign and London sign make it a fun card I think. Perhaps no 007 in sight but a bit of his heritage!!

The photo was taken outside by the pool on a sunny Melbourne day, so the gold really pops!

There is also the chance to win some blog candy this week as the girls are celebrating their 25th challenge...congrats ladies! Here's what is written on the site....
