Tuesday brings Top Tips

Good morning all its Tuesday and a lovely day for a Tip or a few?
Its Tipper Week this week at Top Tip Tuesday Challenge so there are loads of great tips
the girls have to share with you too!

But first this weeks challenge is Pick a SKETCH Challenge,
Yup 2 sketches and you get to choose… and you wanna know what's fun! they are 1 from each of our sponsors! ……………. so you could make 2 cards and use both sketches as at Top Tip Tuesday you can play a maximum of 3 times so you could have fun! with this challenge…. You can flip or twist the sketch however you want to, however, it must have all the components on it.
We have 2 awesome sponsors too! 

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More
Ok so I have chosen the Sketch done for us by Chris from Karens Doodles and have used this Cute image called Hedgehog Love… Its my wedding anniversary soon and I wanted to make a card for my husband and when I saw this image I just new it was perfect soooo cute!
TTT - 12th July Sketch
I coloured the image with distress inks and also added some sakura star dust red to the hearts, did the sentiment on my PC and stickles on the edges… the heart is a wooden heart from a cute pack of hearts that are just perfect for cards… I coloured the heart with distress inks and stickles, and the boarder punch is MS lace hearts but I have not detached the straight strip this is my tip:
I have taken a picture of boarder punched in another colour so you can see it better but when I punched the boarder I did not go right to the ends and tucked that behind my layer… this way you don't have to measure the gap and your boarder is deeper..
sorry I was never very good at explaining so here is the picture
so you see the thin strip at the bottom don’t cut that off its extra and its straight if you enlarge my card you can see what I mean… hopefully Confused smile
I wanted to play a few challenges today so here they are:
Hope you have a fantastic Tuesday and the sun is shining where you are today!!
