Phone book flower Valentine

I'm determined to make these valentines - if only there were people that I love. (just kidding)

I'm really loving this color palette.  It is so much more elegant than almost anything with pink.
 I used old telephone book pages for the flower and under the ribbon.  I did the faux stitching to pick up on the real stitching on the ribbon.  I can believe that with all the border punches I own, I hand cut the scallops.  I did punch the heart with a new heart punch, though.  The word on the heart is from a stamp that has "Happy Valentines Day"; I only needed the one word.

Challenges:
Crafty Catz - Something new (heart punch)
Fun with Shapes and more - no black lines
Polka Doodles - vintage
Phindy's Place - Embossing, ribbon, sewing
Paper Play - stitches
