GDT Top Tip Tuesday!

It's me! 
On a Tuesday! lol
This weeks Challenge at Top Tip Tuesday 
is sponsored by The Crafty Pad Designs.
The theme is Wedding or Anniversary.
 I was lucky enough to be asked to be a GDT for this challenge. 
Here's what I came up with!

As you can see I made an Anniversary card.
The image is called Teds in Love & is surprise surprise from The Crafty Pad Designs.
The With Love sentiment ticket is also from The Crafty Pad Designs.

I made a 6x6inch square tent card.
The design papers are from a freebie set by Joanne Barsby from ages ago! 
I just love the soft colours!
I used a dotty paper for the top & the flourish paper on the lower part.
I than wrapped a satin ribbon around to hide the join in the papers & tied in a double knot at the front.
I also added a little lace doilly.
I coloured the image with promarkers & cut out by hand. 

There's already faux stitching around the outside of the image so I decided to highlight it with a light gray pen & then added some Diamond Sparkles to give it a bit of bling!
I used foam tape to attach to the card 

I treated the sentiment ticket in a similar fashion, adding the bling to the dots.
As well as the sentiment ticket, I added a printed Happy Anniversary greeting to the top section. I simply layered this onto the flourishes paper & mounted using foam tape for dimension.

For some added detail I used pinflair glue to stick on a couple of sweet  little roses 
& to attach some Card Candi!
