Sexy Valentine

This card is for my sweetie for Valentine's Day. I'm not sure if a card can be sexy, really, but that is the look I was going for, with this creation. I've used a sexy image by Barbara Jensen. She is colored with Promarkers. I used my clearstar gelly roll pen to add glittered highlights to her hair, parts of her clothes, her lips and sparkle to her eyes. I added a pink glittered metal brad over her "finger" that was sticking up in a naughty way LOL. (Couldn't have that for a Valentine's Day card, now, could we?) The papers are digi papers By Stitchy Bear ( Pink and black hearts) and Floppy Latte Designs (Pink & White). I've used this sexy black lace (called Gabrielle) and flat back pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. The black and silver ribbon is from my stash. I wanted to make the ribbon resemble the straps on a garter belt, for extra sexiness, so I added the pink bow, with the pearl center. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set by Stampin Up and punched with punches by Stampin Up. The image and the sentiment are mounted with foam tape for dimension. My card layout was inspired by the sketches at Sketch N Stash and Sunday Sketch & Stamp, as well as the layout Linda used in her card at Digistamps4Joy. Linda, I'm scralifing your wonderful layout!

I am entering this sexy card in the following challenges:
