Opinions Needed

This is for Kelly's ATC swap. In my head, I LOVED this idea but now, I'm not so sure. What do y'all think? The colors are not perfect even in real life. I loved the heart on the pinky-red b/g BEFORE I versamarked it, now it almost clashes.

Since I wasn't 100% sure on the colors before I started, I went ahead & stamped this color heart too. I'm wondering if it looks better....
I'm not sure y'all can help since the colors just don't look right in the pics.
What do you think of the layout? Does it need more?? Brads? Eyelets? I really don't think ribbon would be good. Any advice would be appreciated.
Now, a word on ColorBox chalk ink. I LOVE IT!!!! Both hearts were stamped w/this ink. The darker one was the initial stamp, the lighter one is the "stamped off" version. This ink colors so well!! It works FABULOUSLY on acrylic stamps. When used w/traditional rubber stamps, you can get multiple images without reinking with very little color loss.
And, you can stamp on skin with it. For some reason, my coworker decided she needed a heart tatoo & stamped one w/my stamps & ink. It initially rubbed off a bit on her shirt. We'll have to see tomorrow if it stayed on thru showers & sleeping.
