Rose Pink Pattern with White Trim

A sweet love card in shades of rose pink, with a touch of white.  I tried adding some ribbon, but it seemed distracting.  So I left it simple and straightforward.

Note: the gray is background, not part of the card.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) stamper's select white and autumn rose (deep rose), a tiny pink heart print from Pink Paislee pen pals 6 x 6" pack, and the damask print from PTI autumn rose pattern pack.
  • Dies are My Favorite Things scallop ribbon border and PTI wonderful words: love.  To make a border strip with scallops on just one edge, I cut it from a 5/8" strip of white card stock, aligning one edge of the strip to the inner scallop portion of the die.
  • I rounded the bottom corners of the card with 1/2" corner chomper.
