Pink Hearts with White Embossed Panel

I don't use a lot of white on my cards, but I love the lacy look of this with its embossed pattern.  Though I made some changes, I took many of my ideas from Natasha's card for her layout #190 on the Clean and Simple Stamping blog.  Natasha, thank you for (yet another) beautiful layout and example! 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink rustic white, scarlet jewel (burgundy), autumn rose (medium pink), sweet blush (pale pink), and 2009 Bitty Dot Basics hibiscus burst (bright pink on large heart).
  • Embossing folders are Sizzix Berry Splash (on white) and Stampin Up! Square Lattice (on pink).
  • Dies are Spellbinders Nestabilities big scalloped circles LG, and Papertrey Ink photo finish strip A  (sentiment strip) and heart prints (large heart).  
  • The smaller heart was punched with an EK Success 1" punch and the white circle with an EK Success 1-3/4" plain circle punch.  
  • The sentiment "Love you, miss you" is computer-printed in pink ink with burgundy outline, using "Lucida Calligraphy" font.
