Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Guest Designer

A few weeks ago I was picked as the lucky winner of a challenge over at the Through the Craft Room Door Challenge, and as part of my prize was asked to join them as a guest designer for one of their challenges...so today I'm doing just that. All of their challenges are:

'Anything Goes'
(so no excuse not to join in!)

They are sponsored this week by Pickled Potpourri Designs
Pickled Potpourri Designs

I was sent some images from Pickled Potpourri to use...and picked 'Grand Botanical' for my card, printing the images in a couple of different sizes and colouring them using watercolour pencils. I fussy cut the images out, and mounted them on to my card using 3D foam pads. For the background, I embossed plain white card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and 'Perfect Paisley' folders...edging it using co-ordinating yellow & green card. For th scalloped edging I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch, the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp, and the yellow gems are from a My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus' pack.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Congrats on your DT spot hun and what a superb card, love the happy flowers. Now, I am going to ask a technical question here: do you emboss first and then cut to size, or cut to size and then emboss? Hugs xx
