What's Your Favourite Technique

Hi Folks
Just popping by today to share some inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Show Us Your Favourite Technique

The winner of the challenge will receive some crafting goodies from our very own DT member Sammy.

Here is my inspiration project.

Two techniques that I love using (time permitting) is stamping and embossing.  I used a stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps for the sentiment and the flowers.  After colouring in with my promarkers I fussy cut the flowers and stems.  The background was embossed with my large dotty embossing folder.  I cut an aperture so you could see the sentiment and added a die cut around.  Some pearls on the die cut and pearl flourishes finished the card.
Although this is quite a simple card it seemed to take ages to come together.  But I do like the end result.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to check out the challenge at The Crafting Cafe.  Would love to see your favourite technique.

Afraid I am not able to see the photos Mags, Blogger and I presently have this arrangement, I visit but he doesn't share, so all I see are the tiny thumbnails on my reading list but from that I can see it's another glorious creation.
