Non-Cheesy Valentine

I've been dying to get back to SCS weekly challenges, and since I've the day off, I'm trying to play catch up! This is last week's Limited Supplies Challenge, LSC203, Non-Cheesy Valentine. The limited supplies are: use only red, white, pink, and black or kraft; limit embellishments & layers; postcard type; no fold; use punches, Cuttlebug embossing folders, etc...

It was a challenge for me because I don't have heart punches or embossing folders. I did use an array of different Valentine stamps, though. As an embellishment, I made a bookmark out of a giant paperclip, that will double as a gift. The bookmark idea was an afterthought from childhood memories. I remembered receiving Valentine cards with a lollipop inserted into the card. I love those cards!!!

The card sketch is from Paper Craft Planet, SK011709. I'm a newbie over at Paper Craft Planet, and this is my very first sketch with them!!!
