Tropical Colors with Hearts

My card design started with the two vertical pattern strips, which gave me this happy tropical color scheme.  I like it a lot! 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Paper Source blossom (pink),  Papertrey Ink (PTI) Hawaiian shores (turquoise), ripe avocado (green), damask print from PTI lemon tart (light yellow) pattern pack, and two multicolor patterns from Basic Grey 6x6" PB&J (retiring) paper pad.
  • Hearts are edged with Copic marker RV13.  Vertical pattern strips are edged with YG97.  Edging with marker is a nice way to create some definition and contrast, without needing to add a layer of card stock.
  • Dies are PTI one liners and heart border.
