Top Tip Tuesday - Challenge #69 - Valentines - Guest Designer

I am honored  to have the opportunity to be a guest designer this week for Top Tip Tuesday's - Valentines Challenge. My Valentines #2 card I entered for last weeks challenge 'Caught Their Eye', Allowing me this opportunity. This was full of firsts for me. This was the first time that one of my cards has been acknowledged by any challenge I have entered.  My first ever guest designer spot.  This was also my first experience working with both digi-stamps and pencil crayons with mineral spirits. Thanks to everyone at Top Tip Tuesday, for the opportunity.

Sponsors this week are: 


My design:
This is Clyde - Be Mine, available at Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured him in with Pencil Crayons and Mineral Spirits. I went with a light colour pallet for Valentines day. The background is DCWV stack Street Lace. I also included a XO stamp from Micheal's, a die cut heart and embossed the light pink with a Tim Holtz folder. I finished this card off with a bow and used some pop dots for dimension (shown below)

I hope you've enjoyed my first guest design spot, as much as I have. I can't wait to see what others come up with and I encourage everyone to participate. 

Thanks again to Top Tip Tuesday,
