Paper inspired love card

Hi everyone!  I have a fun card to share today. I received the new My Mind's Eye Just Sayin' 6x6 pad and was TOTALLY inspired by this gorgeous paper in it.
Isnt' it lovely with all the flowers, flourishes and hearts?!?
I dug through my dies to see what I had to help recreate this gorgeous look. Here is what I came up with.
First, I knew I wanted to work with the new Cascade Dots die from the new Decorative Card Front series.  These are A2 card sized and there are 9 designs released in the series.  They are on pre-order with shipping in October.
I used it as a stencil with some embossing paste for some fun texture.  After playing around with it for awhile, I wanted to make it pink and to do that I added a drop of reinker to it.  Mix it in and you have a custom color!
 Next I taped the die cut down so it wouldn't move, I spread the paste starting from the lower right corner.  I did it kind of messily instead of spreading it precicely and smoothly.  After removing the stencil, you do have a minute or so to make some corrections.
I also used the new Sentiments 3 dies.  I just LOVE the new Sentiments series dies they are so pretty and loopy!  There are 3 new ones and they are also on pre-order shipping out in October.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!!  Here is a close up pic.
