Say "love you" with a simple sketch that works for guys

This card is perfect for my son's birthday, coming up in a couple of weeks. I used the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and coordiating Bitty Banner framelits.
I started with a Crumb Cake card, and added a 3" x 4" tag of Sycamore Street dsp with some yummy satin Island Indigo ribbon, then used the Hearts framelits to diecut a big heart that I ran through the Honeycomb embossing folder for some great texture. It's a clean, straight-forward card for my loving boy. The best part is I got the Sycamore Street paper and ribbon for FREE, and the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set is also a FREE option when you order $50 during our Sale-a-Bration event. Here's the sketch I very literally followed:
