Happy Anniversary !!

Hello Ai Fans !!
Today I am playing with the  Super cute Square Dancers sku # U1929 and the matching sentiment  Doe -se-doen sku # G2048 , I have some Anniversary cards to make and thought this was the perfect stamp.
I am paper piecing the dress , I always out line the place I am going to paper piece ,so if the piece I cut is not perfect you wont be able to tell , I shade the piece and also added some glitter , the glue will dry clear and all you will see is sparkle .

I colored with copic markers and this is how it turned out , I added glossy accents to the eyeglasses

next for the card , I cut a 5.5 " square card in mustard , then cut 5.25 by 1.50 " Kraft and then wood grain embossed , then ink all my pieces and rough up all my edges with a distress tool

next I use a white ink pad and ink my raised side if my embossing folder , then run my navy card stock through the Big Shot

I cured the edges on my navy pc and added eyelets to the wood and the added twine , I fussy cut my dancers and layered it all together
