A Valentine for my son...

I always got a valentine as a child which I knew was from my Dad but it was lovely to be included, so now I  give Matthew a valentine too. He is 9 now so I was looking for something quite 'cool'! The image is Deacon Heart from Bugaboo and it was just what I was after. (They have Deacon Swing as a freebie this week.) I was struggling to find papers until Summer Driggs released her new freebie 'Dance with Me' earlier this week and I think they are perfect. The hearts are die cut with a Sizzlett die that has seen loads of action lately, lol. The brad is silver which goes well with the greys in real life but it has reflected something in this photo so looks a bit gold, which would be all wrong!

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
