Quilled Heart with Flowers, I Love You Card

This is a card that I made for Valentine's day, but as we all know it is never a bad time to tell someone that you love them. :)
Why is the heart shape not symmetrical you may be wondering? I followed the grooves of a cookie cutter I got from IKEA! Many, many tiny tight coils were rolled for the perimeter. The inside I felt like decorating with husked flowers. The center is actually 2 layers with a white quilled flower base on top of a die cut. Background is a rub-on. 

I'm currently writing from a hotel in Philly. It's so nice to get away from things once in a while.
Unfortunately, there isn't much of a view of the "city of brotherly love" from this 17th floor room.
