Anniversary Gift...

Good morning everyone!

As soon as I saw the collage sheets,
Between the Lines, 
over at Gecko Galz,
I knew I had to make something for my brother and his wife with this image...


My sister-in-law loves giraffe's and this image is so cute!

I edited the image in gimp to add their names.

The blue wire is from my stash,
I twisted it into the heart shape on top then put the two ends through the two holes on the top of the ticket and simply twirled the wire on a dowel.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft's.


The clear gems are from MB's Treasurista.
I add some to the flower cluster on top as well as the one I added to the chain, 
hanging from the bottom,
 along with a couple of blue gems from my stash.


The crochet ribbon is a favorite from Really Reasonable Ribbons.
 
And last but not least...

I added some blue pearl trim all around the outer edges of the chipboard ticket.
 

If it didn't have their names in there it would be hard to part with this one.
I can enjoy it until April though, 
then I will happily send it off to them!
