Today at Papercraft Planet the freebie is "Cosmopolitan." The minute I saw it I thought of this sentiment stamp from Just Rite Stamps that has been lurking in my stash.

The image was colored w/Copics. The papers are from my stash. The frame is a Nestabilities die that was cut, embossed and inked w/Close To My Heart ink. It doesn't show but both glasses were covered with Glossy Accents. The  earrings are covered with Stickles. One corner was punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch. I added swirl bling and a a few other gems. To finish it off I added crochet cotton highlighted with gold accents. My idea was create a very avante garde card. Do you think I pulled it off?
