A real beauty!!

Happy Monday all & Happy day off to me!!!!! Last night I participated in my first PTI blog hop...wow I really saw some fantastic cards!!!!!! I was sooooo inspired!!!! I also had the opportunity to participate in a few sketches this weekend also! The one at Taylored expressions is still going on! it is her 1 year aviv. of the cupcake challenge & she has some prizes up for grabs....I think the total is 9 sketches to do! I may not get to them all but hey....got so many valentine cards to do anyway!!!
This is the sketch for this card.....

I love the way it turned out! It is sooo beautiful in person!! all the black paper is velvet! I am soooo hooked on that stuff!!! the ribbon is velvet as well. The Happy valentine saying is from inkadoodle. Well now it is back to the drawing board!! for a try at sketch #3!! thank you soooo much for today's visit!!! ~Gwen~
