Clean and Simple Card With Love Hearts sketch

Oh my goodness...today is the first day of an OnlineCard Class -Clean and Simple that I signed up to take.  Today was the first class offering and the instruction for a simple sketch design was offered.  Even thought the sketch was for a square card, I prefer rectangular ones so "simply" modified it lol!
The background stamp is a favorite of mine (especially for this time of year).called Raindrops and Swirls by Hero Arts.  Amazingly I had a hand punch that matched the hearts in the swirls; and I also used a Spellbinders scalloped hearts die.  Following the instructions, I masked the center of my pinkish card stock and stamped the background with Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.  I also used the Pearlescent Orchid to stamp the sentiment (With Love by PSX) which I then embossed with Clear embossing powder.  Spellbinder hearts were cut from a peice of the cardstock that I colored using the Pearlescent Orchid Ink Pad...such a wonderful tip from the class. Lastly, I punched 4 hearts using scraps leftover from the Spellbinder cuts and applied them to each corner of the masked area.  A Spica pen was used to outline both the hearts and the rectangular masked area.
