Perfect Sentiments Challenge 13: Vellum Valentines

Welcome back friends for another weekly challenge at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog!

Now that the holidays are over...I am ready to put my Christmas & winter scrappy items away and start working with some different colored papers & embellis so this challenge couldn't have come at a better time :)

This week's challenge is to create a card with a Valentines themed sentiment and the twist is to use vellum somewhere on your project. Here is my card for this weeks challenge..........
I was so happy to get some of my new paper stacks out and start working on something non-Christmas for a change. The floral/patterned paper is from the new DCVW Be Mine Stack & I am in love with this paper let me tell you. I just loved the colors in this paper...very shabby romantic to me. 

The sentiment on the vellum is from Quick Quotes & pretty much sums up how I feel about my hubby : )  I can't recall where the blue flower is from...I keep all of my flowers in vintage glass dishes etc so I don't always remember who they're from. 

The dreamy blue satin ribbon is actually vintage which I just love. Not only is my scrapbook room decor vintage but I also use a lot of vintage items on my projects. I added a key/heart charm on some twine and hand wrote valentine on some chipboard. I rounded the corners on this card to sort of soften it up a bit. 

Here's the inside of the card.....

And one last look at my Vellum Valentine....
