I was honuored to be asked to be a Guest Designer for Ooh La La Creations Challenge for May and June and here is my first card for them, this week's challenge is Tres Chic and I have used a pyramage with two papers from their Passion for Fashion CD. It's a detailed image that called for a fairly simple background, I decided to frame it with a Marianne Creatables Die and this inspired me to try something new and finally get to grips with embossing a die cut shape, as the frame looked nothing much at all until I embossed it. I used my Big Shot, with the following layers: grunge paper, platform with one leaf folded back, cutting plate, die, rubber sheet, black plastic plate. Hoorah now I just have to remember the combination :).
Other embellishments are: Hero Arts sentiment stamp gold embossed, gemstones and roses.
My card is also for the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time -embossing
Sparkles Forum - anything goes
Sweet Stampin' - try something new (embossing diecut, pyramage)
Sugar Creek Hollow - embossing
Do You Stack Up? - make it pop (3D)
