Couture Creations Oooh La La for Crop Stop

This is my last card as Guest Designer for Crop Stop.  I used the beautiful Couture Creations Oooh La La embossing folder that they so graciously sent to me for winning a random draw on their challenge blog.

I wanted to highlight all the pretty individual aspects of this embossing folder so I applied some Creative Expressions gilding wax with my fingers after embossing the white cardstock.  I also painted the entire card with some clear Stickles Glitter Glue for some added sparkle.

For the frame I used my favorite Creative Expressions die called Ornate Pierced Rectangles and cut it out with some glittered craft foam.  I backed the ornate frame with some rose glittered cardstock.  The flowers were cut using the leftover piece of embossed paper that was cut to fit the inside of the frame.  I punched some Cosmos flowers with a Martha Stewart punch and inked the already glittered  flower tops with some Spun Sugar distress ink.  The leaf punch is also by Martha Stewart.

I want to thank Esther for allowing me this opportunity to Guest Design for Crop Stop, and I want to thank Haylie-Jo for sending me this beautiful embossing folder.

You can see more amazing projects every day by visiting the Crop Stop blog.  Also, for your chance to win some Crop Stop prizes, play along at the Crop Stop challenges.  Who knows, your card may be a winner!
