Hidden Valentines

I got heart sequence stuck in the keyboard and can't get them out. I knew that stuff was dangerous! The keys still work so I've pushed them so DH won't see them - hence "Hidden Valentines"

On to my card.

Since the card does not lie flat, I've been experimenting with my tripod. Unfortunately, it's late so I don't have any natural light. The colours are all off. The card does not have any brown in it. The background colour is a lovely deep rose colour. All the DP is from a Costco pack my DH bought me for Christmas. The flower is chipboard that was given to my by a parent at my school who knew I papercraft. The organdy ribbon is Michaels. I used my heart Nesties and then stamped them with SU snowflakes to make them look lacy. This was serendipitous. I was using up scraps that had pink snowflakes on one side and loved the look. The sentiment comes from SU's Wonderful words and the confetti that has already gotten me in trouble has been floating around the house for years.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
