Valentine Giraffe- TTT

It is Tuesday and that means time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday. Our new Challenge is Valentines which will run for two weeks.
Our Host for this challenge is Bettina  who has done a FAB Mailbox tutorial. (after inspiration from Tine's mailbox found here)
Before I go into my card I would like to welcome my new followers; I promise to come and visit your blogs this week:0) I do have some catching up to do since it has been a bit busy with work. So onto my creation.
I have worked hard on this CAS style card. I know it is busy with the DP and all the sparkle but as you can tell my embellishments are minimal.
I have used Bugaboo Giraffe Heart 2 provided by our Sponsor Bugaboo. Aint he just so freaking cute?!? I love the thick lines that are on Bugaboo images.
My Tip going along with this card is: Try doing a Monochromatic image when your paper is very bright and busy. Also adding a bit of color to the focus on the image gives it a real POP!
My image was colored with Toner Gray Copic markers. So much fun doing the monochromatic.
I hope you have  a chance to stop by the TTT challenge blog, we have lots of great TIPS and awesome inspiration by the other DT Ladies.
If you play along with us you will be in the run for prizes from the following Sponsors...
Bugaboo Stamps
Remember you can submit Tips only if you do not have a project to share.
