Penciled sketch has been traced and vectorized in Illustrator. Here are two versions of its current state:

Any ideas on where to go from here? :) Thanks for looking.

I'm using a lovely lyric from an equally lovely Stars song:

These were my hurried initial sketches. I definitely wanted the text to fill a heart shape.

Trying out lettering style and spacing of the words. Needed to redo it from scratch after too many lingering eraser marks so I penciled in everything heavily so I could trace from it.

And this is my project in its current state.

After I've finished making any other pencil changes, I'll ink it and scan it in. I do plan to make the finished piece reversed out (so the text and everything enclosed in the heart shape will be white, while the heart itself will be filled in). 

Feedback welcome. And thanks for reading this. :)
