Valentines card

I had an idea! OMG I hate it when I get an idea for a card in my head and then try to make it! Basically I came across a padded red and white heart and I had an idea to put this in a valentines card for Neil along with a bike!!! And I actually like the resulting card it seem to come together okay and since we will be on the road when it is valentines day, I gave it to Neil early, and he loved it!!!

and a close up

The card was made for the following 3 blog challenges:
The Sweet Stop sketch #90 - follow their sketch with a spin to dry emboss
Anabelle Stamps blog - use red and white
Southern Girls challenge blog - 'totally loved up'
The reason behind this valentines card is that we will be starting out our cycle tour next week to South Australia and off course we will be on the pushbikes, but because we take the dog with us we both have to tow a trailer behind the bike (hence the trailer stamp filled with hearts!) although I do have bags up front of the bike they don't carry flowers but food! So this is a very specific valentines card for Neil!
Thanks for looking.
***A little note***
I am sorry I didn't put up a materials list for this card so here is the relevant info:
Stamp - Practicing Creativity Designs 'Whole Cycle' (if you are in Australia I bought them online at Jay Gees Nook)
Cuttlebug heart and dot embossing folders and the padded heart was a small gift from an online store that I shopped at.
