CR84FN46 - Hearts and Flourishes

For the  CR84FN  colors this week I used some beautiful paper and pieced together the background and my heart.  To soften the color of the paper to get closer to the soft pinks and yellows I distressed the papers with white acrylic paint.

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps.  The hearts are from Spellbinders Heart dies.  Not much stamping other than the sentiment and the background behind the sentiment.

Here are the colors:
