The Pixie Cottage Challenge #13 - Embossing (wet or dry)

Happy Wednesday!
At the Pixie Cottage we are changing things up a little and are now going to be offering challenges every week!
Also we are changing to a "Take Your Pick" style challenge. We will give you a sketch and a technique/product/theme and you can chose to do one, the other or both!
This week's sketch comes from Senior Team Member Pam.

Along with the sketch we have the technique of Embossing, wet or dry, your choice so please play along with the sketch, technique or both!

Of course I've added a few other challenge too:
Diva Stamper had a photo inspiration with the colors Red, Yellow and Green
ABC were at R is For Red
Praire Fairy want Texture
Raise The Bar want April Showers or not, something to do with Weather (my title fits don't you think?)
Our Creative Corner want Buttons (I hope my chipboard ones count)
No Time To Stamp want Chipboard

Card Recipe:
Image - Down On The Farm by Tina Akonom
Paper - Summer Song by My Minds Eye
Cipboard Buttons - Colorbok
Flowers - Hobby Lobby
Die Cut - Spellbinders
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Printed

This is such a cute image and it was super to color, be sure to check it out at the store.
So now it's your turn, chose the sketch or chose the technique or choose both!
But be sure to come and play in The Pixie Cottage this week!
