Papertrey February Blog Hop - Sweet Spring: From the bottom of my heart

Ah, sweet spring - what a great and timely inspiration as we are all in need of spring!
I just love that Aqua Mist shade in the pic above so used that as my jumping off point.  I took that as my card base and used some leftover hearts from the cover plate and a Pink Paislee patterned paper.
I stamped a line using Faux Ribbon and some  Colorbox Frost White Ink - love its crisp look on the card.  Confession time - I actually die cut a negative piece using Fabulous Frames' rounded label die but, stupid me, it was not straight!! So plan B - I covered my boo boo with a white strip stamped with polka dots and a sentiment from Fancy Flourishes.  My idea was to have the sentiment stamped on the inner part of the card peeking through the negative die cut ... alas, it was not to be!
Isn't that Fresh Birch ink a cool colour?  It looks very like Kraft to me ...

Very pretty card! Love the aqua mist colour--it says "Spring!"-- and how you've used the hearts! (I'll have to remember that hearts can be made into flowers!)
