Thanks, Stacey and Madeline - I appreciate your feedback! I've submitted the black version (keeping the pink "love") to see which is preferred. Here are a couple of alternate colorways and photos.

You're so sweet, Stephaine - thank you! I have to thank Stacey for the suggestion of a pink "love" and Kerri for her critique of my heart shape. :)

I think the colors you have look nice (and I like the heart much better now), but I have to admit I loved the unexpectedness of the black and white (with a black and white photo too) for a Valentine's card... I thought it made it stand out from the sea of pink and red and purple cards. Don't get me wrong though, I still love though version you have up!

ooh, I love it. The heart shape and red are perfect now. What about a punchier pink, like this?? The one you have is still ready almost white to me.

I know i have the wrong font but you catch my drift. I think it will work better with the font you used since it's thicker too. Just a thought.

I like the red that you have chosen and the idea... My thought would be to try a more organic heart, not so perfectly cut... Also wondering what it would look like with the color block being slightly transparent?

I really like the red you have posted. I might try the word love in a pale pink, kind og bubble gummy, not peachy.

Stunning Kim ! I think the red color version pops a little bit more, and the photo with the boy also brings a cuteness into your design :)
