I've made a trick where you have the spectator touch a card, and look at it. the card is returned to the middle of the deck and you tell them, "I want to look into your eyes. Concentrate on your card. I want to be able to tell what it is. Eight of Spades. No? Crap. Um, let's see if a card has reversed itself in the middle of the deck. Nope. Crud." At this point you reach for your hankerchief and sneeze or blow your nose. The hankerchief unfolds to show an image of their true card. You then say, "Ugh, I must have a sinus infection. Take a look at this." You reverse the cloth to the side where you sneezed. Their card is right there. Right in the folds of the cloth. The card can even be signed.

It would be cool if the handkerchief could have a signature also.

Cool idea though. I have done most of that type of routine, but not having the actual card right there. I basically presented it as a laugh-getter, your version has a little more magic involved. Well done.
You must be smarter than the tools you are using...

After blowing your nose into the handkerchief, show them the card glue to it and let them wonder what's the substance which keeps it attached to the handkerchief Smile

Not too sure about the substance thingy....you may want to seek out a book just calld Card Magic written by Harry Baron (of the Magic Circle) there was a routine based on the same ideas, only in effect the selected card turned blank and the image appeared on the hank......very good MO as I seem to recall.
