OCL CAS challenge

This is my last card today (it isn't quite midnight yet)  LOL!  Our Craft Lounge has their weekly challenge posted today.  Another new one for them!  Do a CAS card with a heart theme.  So........hearts, valentines etc. are not OCL stamps sets that I have (and I have alot of them).  So.....I went digging through the sets that I had and found only 2 that had hearts in them.  I ended up choosing 'Sunshine Cheer'. 
CAS (clean and simple) is not easy for me.  I love to use layers, and ribbons and flowers and glitter and brads and, well,,,,,you get the idea.  The thought of one layer and nothing making my card cost more to mail almost gave me hives!   Heh, heh.
The ribbon is glued on flat, no bow.  The random hearts are brads with the legs cut off and the tops glued on.  The images and sentiments are simply stamped and colored.  The embossed lines are done with an embossing board to keep the lines straight.
The inside has 'Valentine's Day' hand written.
The best part of doing a CAS card, it only took about 15 minutes to complete!
