Happy Valentine's day- my way

Hi bloggers. I have a cutesy card today, sort of Valentiney, but could be used for other occasions I think. I don't have a Valentine in my life so I'm not big on them I guess. There are a few neutral challenges out there this week I want to enter so this is my interpretation.
Once again I got a little carried away with "stuff" on my card, but I LOVE it. I'm on a mission to try & use up some of my over abundance of jared (word?) flowers. You know, the ones everyone went nuts over packed in jars or cute little irresistible boxes. And I know you're out there. Well I was not immune to that fad either and now I trying to devise a way to use them up. Stack em', trim em', glitter em', brad em' cover em' up with something else, well you get the picture, LOL. The image is from My Besties, artist Sherri Baldy. Love those little big eyed girls!
I used some Spellbinder Classic Scalloped Hearts, Bitty Blossoms,  Cheery Lynn Heart to Heart Lace Doily set,  Mini Fanciful Flourish, and my new Magnolia Doohickey die called "Sprawling Ferns"
I waited and waited for this baby. It comes from overseas and was backordered week after week, but Leann over at Picture This is persistent & oh my goodness it was worth the wait. You ask how anyone could get so excited about a die? A line from a song comes to mind "Sometimes I get a little feeling" and that is pretty much all I have to say about that! The ribbon papers & charm are from my stash, oh and the bottom of the card was made with an old MS border punch. The name of it eludes me at the moment. Here's a close-up for you & I've listed the Copics below. For the girls who took my class last weekend on folds & pleats, notice how I used that technique on the cupcake wrapper!

Skin- E13, 11, 000, W3
Cheeks- R30, E000
Lips- RV34, CB
Hair- E23, 31, 41, W3
