Valentine Defined for the Paper Players 29 & SSSC99

I am super happy that I was able to combine these two wonderful challenges together to create this Valentine Card today. The Paper Players are offering to create anything Valentines Related, and Sweet Sunday Sketch...well has another terrific Sketch for you!

I wanted to go "outside" the normal color palet for valentines day and use SU Cherry Cobbler. It is such a Deep and Rich Red. I hope you like it!!
