Default I need help designing a wall hanging

For Valentine's Day, I'd like to make my new grand daughter a wall hanging. Of course, I'd like a heart(s) but I would also like it to say, "You are loved." My children bought me an electronic fabric cutting machine for Christmas so it shouldn't (fingers crossed) be difficult to cut out letters and applique them to a quilt. However, for the life of me, I can't picture how I would like this wall hanging to look. Have you seen something similar I can use for inspiration? Or maybe have some ideas of your own? I'm a new quilter so I don't have a lot of expertise to fall back on.

Thanks!

I've been trying (still am ) Google, Pinterest, Craftsy...basically any place I can think to look but for some reason I'm having a serious mental block when trying to picture this project. Ugh. I may have to give it a pass this year.

This one would be cute. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/181621797452905099/

You could put your saying, "You are loved" underneath the heart, (where there are 3 little flowers on a white background).

That's a good idea. I think I might have become so stuck on applique words that I overlooked embroidering them.

Take one of those patchwork hearts and reverse it. Put the patchwork on the outside of the heart, very colorful, and then inside the plain white heart itself put your words. I want to paint a barn quilt this way and just put an initial on it.
